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:

Wind
jpmhawk

We are no different
 1
Than the wind
 2
 
 
We gather form bellow
 3
Predictable and sudden
 4
 
 
Yanked shoved carressed
 5
By the moon
 6
 
 
Carrying leaves song stench
 7
Dropping limbs hats homes
 8
 
 
We feel good in the sun
 9
Cold in the night
 10
 
 
We are tunnels chimes
 11
Gusts direction
 12
 
 
We gently blow
 13
Dangling eyelashes
 14
Off the ones we love
 15
