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:


Entire life I lived with one woman
little time to understand their secrets,
I am asking her which is yours?
Walk to the bed that's all
I will explain on examples e.g.
a guy saying just in socks  is funny,
same one with dropping saliva
I’m asking
but How should he be in the bed?
Well it depends on his behaviour
during entire day, whether he was attentive,
sensitive, concentrated as the puma.
I became frustrated, so how am I?
You are weak in the bed,
focused on yourself and boring
but you are a high earner and
I have children with you.
