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:

she says goodnight and turns her back
saysayonara

a quick breeze passed by,
 1
made by her shoulders
 2
and it had no smell.
 3
then she closed the door
 4
under the staircase
 5
and left me to walk
 6
back to my room.
 7
why recall the breeze?
 8
i'd rather forget it,
 9
the butterflies, and
 10
the reason for the slowness
 11
walking past the ivy,
 12
brick,
 13
rye grass,
 14
and chinese elms
 15
back to my room.
