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:

Morning news
bombastic44

elevators that creak and groan
 1
crazy gothic flats
 2
cheap chandeliers
 3
endless flights of dusty wood panneling
 4
each floorboard whining at the slightest touch
 5
old copper coins, heavy like gold
 6
endless copacabana wafting through the walls
 7
and the news, read while
 8
everyone else sleeps
 9
old ladies who pay me to walk their dog
 10
counting footpath cracks - a logic
 11
obsessed freak boy
 12
hands dirty with money and newsprint
 13
or frozen to to the barrow handle
 14
and footpaths rising like everest
 15
diposal store clothes
 16
and the smell of salt in the air.
 17
 
 
Now i'm addicted.
 18
to a fresh newspaper,
 19
high tech clothing,
 20
crackless footpaths,
 21
and crazy viking girls and their perky butts.
