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:

postmodernism is the new axis of evil coaching moebius selves to vomit gibberish
noodleman

i began:
 1
"thick wine-painted cheeks
 2
thrust proudly forth
 3
in petulance
 4
eternal childhood brings
 5
whilst spittle dries
 6
upon a drowsy lip..."
 7
 
 
and then i realized
 8
i am a bourgeouis prick
 9
writing mediocre poetry
 10
about a wino
 11
in a parking lot
 12
in order to impress
 13
a bunch of strangers
 14
on the internet
 15
with my eye for detail
 16
and my flexible vocabulary.
 17
 
 
and i decided
 18
there ought to be a special place
 19
in hell
 20
for those
 21
like
 22
me.
