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?

Accepting The End: A Moment of Clarity
SirBoggy

My time is coming
 1
my moment specially reserved
 2
just for me
 3
my once-in-a-life-time
 4
moment of clarity
 5
 
 
when I will not be distracted
 6
by the happenings of the world
 7
how grand it will be
 8
not as poetry in motion
 9
placating my soul
 10
but poetry
 11
as it is
 12
intended to be seen –
 13
as it is –
 14
as it be –
 15
 
 
it will overwhelm me
 16
it will saturate me
 17
it will give me a reason to pray
 18
it will make me thankful
 19
in a preternatural way
 20
for my all-at-once
 21
my all-is-one
 22
moment of clarity.
 23
