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?

Random Poem:

The Moebius strip reinvented for lovers
netskyIam

Take a ribbon, any color.
 1
Join its ends, a simple band.
 2
 
 
Write your life upon your side.
 3
I'll do the same with mine.
 4
 
 
Cut apart, make one full twist.
 5
Rejoin the ribbon in its loop.
 6
We're insulars, still separated.
 7
 
 
We can touch by ribbonphoric
 8
dancing in odd twists. In turns
 9
 
 
I'll meet you at your day-ends now
 10
to be your evenings forever.
