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:

Angst
Lossandra

Teenage angst used to fill
 1
my pen with fire
 2
consuming page after page after page
 3
with the desire of normalcy.
 4
I wished, with abandon, to acquire
 5
control of my blazing anger
 6
and now I realize it was all
 7
that kept my pen from freezing.
