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?

that something finally

could happen she would
 4
cautiously unbutton
 5
part of her shirt
 6
to expose bruised
 7
belly button
 8
to test whether
 9
a jewel
 10
hooked to fat
 11
would draw a curious
 12
poke, a sympathetic fondle
 13
or silent revulsion.
