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?

lines for Syd
lazyduck187

it was an early morning or a late afternoon
 1
i can't remember exactly
 2
 
 
the air was still and the silence's prince
 3
was becoming king.
 4
 
 
i knew about his leaving
 5
and i took the instrument in my hands
 6
 
 
i played the whole record
 7
as accompaniment of bizzarre ideas
 8
wild arms and warming melodies.
 9
 
 
i got seaside eyes
 10
and i wished you were there.
