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:

All that glisters
gogo

Acch, and lo, all heathens say hello
 1
Aye, and sacrements to those below
 2
wither thou spendeth free or ensnare
 3
Twas beed the devil visiting there.
 4
When the shining thru dark doom asunder
 5
and glinst caught in thoust twinkling eye
 6
the very first breath wasted on words
 7
didst end the very golden shining.
 8
 
 
And whom taught this false endeavours yet
 9
so slowly that two truths contrary and true
 10
rent time asunder whilst mind bewonder
 11
and all and space betwixt and gone
 12
Twas all the same. And you and i. And all.
 13
