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?

Bare Feet
rattlesnakes

It’s been seven years
 1
Since I walked through shopping centres
 2
In bare feet with nothing but a
 3
Bra under my overalls
 4
 
 
And now I don’t like hippies
 5
But you called me from a forest bonfire
 6
In blind faith
 7
 
 
And I haven’t seen you for
 8
Seven years
 9
But you still think I’m that girl
 10
Who wants to talk about aliens
 11
 
 
When nobody who believes in the bible
 12
Can give me one good reason
 13
Why they believe
 14
 
 
Other than blind faith
 15
