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:

hidden time (the hidden way to the wonderland)
lazyduck187

the whole angel's caste
 1
with wayfarer sunglasses
 2
is walking in the mainstreet
 3
 
 
when i realize that there's no past
 4
and future as well
 5
but just a frame unable to freeze.
 6
 
 
i'm by the window's door
 7
spead as a bread slice
 8
on the forehead of the Butter hill
 9
 
 
and when the body will start melting
 10
i'll be just staring
 11
at the fading of the presence tense.
 12
 
 
i can use a funny sneer
 13
to unlock the little device
 14
stuck on your serious heart
 15
 
 
and
 16
 
 
in the hidden time
 17
i'll tell you the password.
