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:

February doesn't mean I love you
unknown

I hate February
 1
because it smells like fish tacos
 2
but I like fish tacos
 3
 
 
I just hate that it smells like February–
 4
 
 
Meet me in the park
 5
in March
 6
and we can chew pig ears
 7
and talk smack about February
 8
 
 
Or just tell me to shut my hole
 9
and I will put a fish taco in there
 10
