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?

angelas small world

prettifying clips of differing colors

were more or less hair world

first thing in the morning

 6
to spill and reorganize
 7
pretty contents all day and the difference

between us and her is that
 9
our container is bigger
