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?

We are all essentially godless
 1
But when boys gather around men
 2
In summer grass
 3
When no one is meant to inspire them
 4
But does instead by accident
 5
Something.
 6
Magical.
 7
Occurs.
 8
 
 
Engulfed in admiration and awe
 9
An epiphany ensues..
 10
 
 
When we stop actively trying to inspire and create
 11
Moldinourownimage
 12
is when we get real results
 13
We look behind us
 14
and
 15
allofasudden
 16
We have a following.
 17
A source of golden inspiration
 18
 
 
And EXHALTation
 19
