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:

Pc message board idea jousters

Sabres crossing in the night in
struggles they love more, these fights
to pin or point
at the other's chin;
two feel alive,
more in one skin
It is not just a phrasing: French
and who does not ejaculate
or thrill for that word "touche!"
at fence?
