Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

No such thing in all the world

Proven by the finest minds

they know.

Don’t be fooled

by poets, dreamers,

merchants of your future sadness

Stay strong, walk away

the very notion is a ruse of nature

There is no such thing as love
