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?

Slick Torrent
Haxxen

Trail of serpent, followed me here
 1
Or perhaps I followed it too
 2
To a village of idiots and occasional wisdom
 3
befalling the fancy of fools.

Iniquities abound
 6
And too, am I bound
 7
By their peculiar chimera
 8
Of libertine ladies gracing my floor
 9
Whilst the man
 10
Masturbates at my door.

The scent of lewd coupling
 13
oft' graces my lips
 14
While copulate literature
 15
Flows
 16
from my fingertips
 17
Ending up here in some virtual space
 18
With no grace of its origin
 19
given.

This slick torrent of digital lore,
 22
in time
 23
will be gone,
 24
and thenceforth unknown
 25
Leaving there only tablets
 26
Of truly wise Toltecs
 27
Writ
 28
In immutable stone.
