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:

The Hanged Man
kraydel

I've got devil's eyes
 1
And a means to an end
 2
I've got worlds to burn
 3
And some dangerous friends
 4
I've got writer's hands
 5
And a martyr's mouth
 6
I've got wicked intent
 7
And an urge to turn south
 8
I've got a first-class ticket
 9
On a hell bound plane
 10
I've got ideals to deny
 11
And some distance on sane
 12
I've got some blank pages
 13
And some words that I wrote
 14
I've got a cynical smile
 15
And a star in my throat
 16
I've got a girl I can't trust
 17
And a life I regret
 18
I've got places to be
 19
And people to forget
 20
