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:

Ugly human
unknown

ugly human often dresses well to kill will maim & rape with relish diminish as if any other’s loss were gain & pain affording pleasure the worst & least confirmed in every act with no compassion or discretion of pack derision for the weak pride in every fall we worship the beast in us all seems so victorious when the heat is on blood lust will grip in viscous vindication being never so human as when we thrill to turn on our selves
