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:

Nellie's Nervous Recital

Puppies with noses and
whiskers with kittens
Snowflakes that fall on
Mom's weave and false lashes
Little brat sister
All tied up with string
These are a few of my favorite things
When the bees bark
When the dogs stings
When I'm feeling sad!
I simply remember my favorite things
and then I don't feeeeel  toooo bad!
