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:

As I Have Trespassed
sybarite

should I reveal
 1
stains beneath my countenance
 2
would you linger
 3
cup them in your hands
 4
take their weight
 5
as clue to my shoulders
 6
 
 
would you taste
 7
melting on your tongue
 8
blush and rime, the season
 9
of my unspoken
 10
 
 
if held to ear, would you hear
 11
the notes of my transgressions
 12
and with them
 13
would you compose for me
 14
an ocean?
 15
