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:

hidden time (the hidden way to the wonderland)

the whole angel's caste
with wayfarer sunglasses
is walking in the mainstreet
when i realize that there's no past
and future as well
but just a frame unable to freeze.
i'm by the window's door
spead as a bread slice
on the forehead of the Butter hill
and when the body will start melting
i'll be just staring
at the fading of the presence tense.
i can use a funny sneer
to unlock the little device
stuck on your serious heart
in the hidden time
i'll tell you the password.
