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:

the otherside-inside of morning breath
DeformedLion

crawled inside my mouth
 1
Indiana Jones style,
 2
  slept through
 3
  till mid-afternoon
 4
 
 
and found myself on lolling tongue.
 5
Bacteria!
 6
Oh Shit, [I cried
 7
and] did a quick one-two,
 8
four-five,
 9
jive myself through
 10
saliva,
 11
 
 
dive-
 12
three-seven-eight,
 13
got
 14
out.
 15
 
 
swung on tonsils
 16
Tarzan-like
 17
farted down
 18
my throat
 19
choked
 20
 
 
came out barely alive
 21
need a smoke,
 22
 
 
in bed. breathless,
 23
glowing like a prince.
 24
