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:

death is my favorite thought (for a friend)
Blitzgig

pattern grapes,
 1
golden-, yellow-, green,
 2
dead,the taste
 3
dead the laughter
 4
break bowl
 5
roll, scatter
 6
under the sky cupboard
 7
cloud bounce into my mouth
 8
(teeth between)
 9
face on floor
 10
against red tape.
 11
 
 
pals, two skin cells.
 12
both dead, grey
 13
from two different hosts
 14
fell two different days.
 15
hello, reach out
 16
wrist wasp, kiss hand.
 17
knock on the beehive door
 18
i am invited in.
 19
i cannot behave.
 20
i am not invited to stand.
 21
 
 
your color palette
 22
what it got you?
 23
nods, polite requests
 24
i am not satisfied here.
 25
'every day make an enemy'
 26
that what god etched behind my forehead.
 27
piano kite, i will play
 28
walking out the park one day
 29
walking out my suit skin
 30
please do not be afraid
 31
or feel guilt
 32
you were the lamp among chairs.
 33
everything is my enemy.
 34
