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?

Almost a Cartoon Story
starryme

Things go a lot differently in my head
 1
see, in my head, i come soaring in on my
 2
cloud of authority
 3
wearing my
 4
boy kicking shoes
 5
my muscles flexed, my eyebrows scrunched down
 6
as if to say, " i could crush you"
 7
and then
 8
 
 
BAM
 9
 
 
i land in front of you
 10
like a powerpuff girl or mighty mouse
 11
and there you are, stunned
 12
and i say
 13
    "baby.
 14
        you and me
 15
                       dont mesh
 16
                       dont get me started.
 17
        Get out of the way"
 18
 
 
In reality,
 19
im just the kid
 20
sitting in front of the TV
 21
watching the cartoon,
 22
not sure what happens next.
