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:

disappearing act
lazyhead

There's a sweet nothing from emptiness -
 1
some candid stars canvassed black
 2
under the ever-ebbing canopy of light.
 3
Joseph Kittinger was inside himself,
 4
a gentle breeze from glowing loneliness.
