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?

Random Poem:

time of darkness
suzej

grandpa had spiders in his workbench
 1
old screws and darkness
 2
which I saw there
 3
 
 
I have never seen such a thing before
 4
 
 
in my naivete
 5
I took only light
 6
which I gave away with no counting
 7
 
 
workbench and dreams were pushing me
 8
toward side of darkness
 9
 
 
Difficult to understand?
 10
 
 
Imagine that black cat is crossing your way
 11
everyday
 12
 
 
and there come such a day
 13
black cat is crossing as always
 14
but  you feel the deep prick
 15
 
 
and you desperately start to count
 16
your close friends
 17
and you cant’t find all positions
 18
 
 
 
 
some time is passed
 19
and you feel that you missed a lot
 20
and everything is not such as should be
 21
 
 
this is the sign
 22
that light has left you
 23
 
 
this is the sign
 24
of darknes time
 25
