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?

poem:
 1
 
 
leisurely chasing north, our howling clown
 2
whitefaced fated trips over his feet
 3
into the honest black, or else (as god would rather i say,)
 4
the night sky. now, further,
 5
the night is humid.
 6
the streets are quiet, warm, wet. and as we lie down,
 7
it is raining fresh cunt,
 8
which upon arrival,
 9
having penetrated ozone,
 10
should properly
 11
descend slowly (our eyes  adjust accordingly
 12
to the new red
 13
dripping,
 14
crawling lightly against our fresh virgin white,embracing our separate nudities or else simply,
 15
for the love of god. it smells funny.)
 16
 
 
falling gently, we. now, is it
 17
profound enough for you,
 18
that i sit unmoving with my mouth
 19
open
 20
and the bridge of my nose
 21
parallel
 22
to the wet sky?
 23
would you rather
 24
my mouth open, humid,
 25
trembling a sigh
 26
into your own,
 27
waiting together for dripping red cunt. and clown. ?
