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?

Love
oxtales

"love" the mysterious
 1
guest shining bright in
 2
the coupling morn leaving
 3
care in its wake and
 4
vision not blind to the taste
 5
of touching sounds
 6
crying at joy's sweet
 7
peace -love the
 8
passenger in benefit's
 9
journey unlike the dark
 10
home of lonesome dreams
 11
this day's heart's pride
 12
and the treasure found
 13
buried in the sands
 14
of time's solace
 15
be not loud and soon over
 16
but quiet as doves
 17
of a new harmony
 18
the way graceful foregetting
 19
false intoxications
 20
of brief travels but
 21
a bright star in the oceans
 22
of diamond sky
 23
