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:

Future paths
useine

Diminished beaches, on a contra stream
 1
flowing on the outside, yet are
 2
trapped inside into submission.
 3
Whose voices once joinned soften
 4
to say clueless
 5
cannot compete
 6
Those rings of hands
 7
preparing to shoulder waves
 8
bequeathed from the
 9
streams of long intent
 10
set into future paths
 11
