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:

dance floor.
nightofROCK

the silver halos
 1
are accented disco balls,
 2
providing instant spin.
 3
 
 
spin me a headache.
 4
spin me a heartache.
 5
 
 
spin me a web
 6
in which to panic
 7
because tonight the
 8
future lies in the
 9
hands of the
 10
dance floor.
