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:

scott
unknown

blackboard at half an inch
 1
someone else's tongue too easy
 2
smoked chalk swirled Venn
 3
and you yawn a purr
 4
there are fences, you say
 5
black and white and gray
 6
toothpicks at one's whim
 7
live wires too heavy
 8
 
 
before one opens the door
 9
laugh it off with bowed ties bowed words
 10
bowed cocks in offshore living rooms
 11
bowed cocks ready to be spoiled
 12
 
 
alien words at half an inch
 13
cosset                            (let your imagination run)
 14
like you're poor
 15
