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:

Old woman
katt

We will die.
 1
It is not a matter of ‘if’, but a certainty
 2
Human kind will not wake
 3
before its too late
 4
They will be dangling on their last strings
 5
blaming everyone else for not seeing
 6
the demise they collectively caused.
 7
 
 
Every time I wake
 8
I remember this future
 9
as one remembers the past
 10
and I know that my life is indeed a waste
 11
 
 
maybe
 12
 
 
It’s a good thing I’m not alone
 13
because I feel bad for feeling bad
 14
when someone feels bad when I do.
 15
So I believe I can make a difference
 16
because a god gave me this friend
 17
to remind me why I try.
