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:

slip karma hallucinations
varun

lines on my palm, i exchanged
 1
for the weight of choice.
 2
i have the furious heart
 3
of a gypsy, eyes
 4
of winged-dreamers.
 5
long hair of carelessness, stubble
 6
of laze.
 7
froze time in my pockets to pick
 8
when seasons turned, and the seasons
 9
are always scents.
 10
i sniff at dawn for change,
 11
curse the moon for when
 12
shadows shift, curse
 13
the stars for rebellion:
 14
when opium turns to morning,
 15
i slip from string'd sleep
 16
to daydreams.
 17
