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:

grey
caustic

and there is a blankness in my mind
 1
 
 
floating somewhere between black and white
 2
conversations fall with an imperceptible
 3
thud
 4
at the base of my skull
 5
barely even registered
 6
as noise
 7
 
 
muffled twilights trickle down
 8
my throat
 9
cooling my insides and
 10
drenching the world in tones of blue
 11
 
 
a nightingale
 12
sings my nerves awake
 13
 
 
and the blankness clears
 14
