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?
Development updates from Twitter:
Mortality became real tonight,
as I looked down upon the nightlights of La Grande, Oregon
I am twenty-one, so new, so what
How many more years of my countdown.
How many heart-heavy cakes,
ribbons to blind,
candles staring me down.
Next time, I won't play along
Let them burn
Tonight, I'll leave my window open
feel my breath,
Oh crisp orange light, laughter below.
