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?

Into a particular possibility,

Spread out into

Flat electron ejaculate-

A glossy simulacrum

flesh job.

Oh how I ah

In this buzzing molecular

You’re not real

But what is?

Since you’ve seen his

Has no subject

An objectified O

Of mouth

Openness

Nothingness-whatever…

I cannot feel
 22
Your sun shine.
 23
And I betcha think
 24
You’re pretty clever
 25
Your pouty eyes,
 26
Your wisp of pink
 27
And all that slope
 28
 
 
I betcha think
 29
You’re pretty clever.

An image
 31
Of an image
 32
Of an image
 33
My pixelated prison-
 34
 
 
A leg, a shoe,
 35
The bend of a toe-
 36
An idea
 37
Rubbing me off
 38
In a sigh.
