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:


i sit packin this fiction
when i talk every single bitch listens
i casually brandish my nine
and it glistens
now what i say for you is only for you
when you spit it to other people it makes me want to regulate on you like a nazi on a jew
whats new?
according to him he fingered up you
and she says you gave him the door
but there is still another option i must explore
this crossword puzzle is my life
and this lunchbox is my world
it looks like a meal
but its something i just hurled
packed like a clam and pearled like an oyster
you should talk as much as monks in a cloister
