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:

Second Hand
larrylark

Everything caused him to creep.
 1
A slow steady gait
 2
seeps into ways of being.
 3
To maintain supine position
 4
was his mission in this world.
 5
 
 
He loved to watch sun dials
 6
sleep their way through shadows,
 7
yet never realised he’d missed
 8
the vast sweep of a universe,
 9
forever turning as it kissed infinity,
 10
beyond confines of time,
 11
melting down fingers on the face of his clock.
 12
