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?

pull_my_hair

and their tears flooded the atlantic ocean
 1
with such vengence and terror
 2
that the beaches began to erode
 3
the sands softest layer
 4
 
 
voices were drowning in the silence
 5
too many questions without any answers
 6
content with their defeat
 7
 
 
and i know
 8
that i can't always be heard
 9
 
 
but God,
 10
can you hear me?
