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:

sleep little boy
danflore

sleep little boy
 1
dream this night away
 2
with its unlit stars
 3
swing from trees
 4
hidden deep in forests
 5
wander to where the old lake used to flow
 6
dive deep into the waters you remember
 7
where mother swam with dad
 8
and they splashed you with laughter
 9
go there and listen for the echoes of that day
 10
let them sing you to slumber
 11
