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?
Development updates from Twitter:
|my friend, george.|
now that we're both different
since we've grown out of the skins
that made us so akin to each other,
i confess this once that i indulge
sometimes in listening to songs
we talk endlessly about
at days on end
and retreat to that deep cosy place
in my head where the old you still lives.
its been so long
on some visits,
the person doesn't quite look or seem like you
on a more polite and not so chummy note;
like the conditions between us now,
hello, how have you been?
do you still have three hobbies
you find it hard to keep up with?
are you still cryptic from time to time?
and do you maybe also have a little dark spot
where a not so accurate version
of me resides?
