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?

in two thousand three
 1
her wicked clouds
 2
blew in winds that
 3
built water walls
 4
falling, destroying
 5
all daring to
 6
stand in their way but

in the same name in
 8

 9
tropical hell
 10
contrasted with
 11
romantic verse and
 12
the lullabye rhythm of
 13
the lady poet whose
 14
precious words soothed and
 15
whose gentle spirit
 16
made me forget
