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:

I'll Punch Your Poetic Face
JKWeb

till you bleed burgundy
 1
 
 
I’ll write on your tongue
 2
so every word you speak
 3
is no longer volatile
 4
 
 
blue bourbon disgrace,
 5
lepers crawl from your pen,
 6
disease each page
 7
 
 
you’ve been deemed
 8
pretentious artist
 9
 
 
so reach for your noose,
 10
bleed the ink from your wrist
 11
and write your masterpiece
 12
from the wasteland
 13
