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?

Text Away VI
EdwardDurden

He said his final goodbye and stepped out toward the rain.
 1
He'd been standing in her doorway for four "goodbyes", but neither wanted to depart.
 2
He walked to his car in the rain with a smile, backed out,
 3
and saw her wave him away, smiling.
