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?

Sky Ripples
unknown

Sky Ripples
 1
        ice-cream raindrops, fat, heavy
 2
  fall -inexorable miracles slam
 3
            agaist my wall.
 4
The windowpane responds in kind,
 5
whistles, when the faraway calls...
 6
        I drift, like ships
 7
with many sails
 8
    into the wind while hails of heaven
 9
patter.
