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:

Almighty
unknown

In the bright light of day and calm of the night,
 1
A pioneer of life, a new satellite,
 2
He watches and roams the seas and the hills,
 3
A new life begins, for each one he kills.
