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?

Scrambled eggs

I love it
 1
when you unexpectedly
 2
give me
 3
a warm loving
 4
blowjob
 5
in the morning.
 6
 
 
With the sounds
 7
of garbage truck
 8
sirens
 9
and mockingbirds
 10
serving as
 11
suburban roosters.
 12
 
 
It's basically
 13
an orchestra
 14
of daily routines
 15
but with
 16
the background music
 17
of your vulnerable self
 18
succulating my
 19
precious, yet
 20
groggy johnson.
 21
 
 
Dazed
 22
we are
 23
but joyous as the sun
 24
shines
 25
its rays
 26
into the living room.
 27
As if
 28
Jesus
 29
Buddha
 30
and Phil Jackson
 31
were all having a
 32
blueberry muffin
 33
and a cup
 34
of green tea.
