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:

Death creeps over the valley
 1
you lay there as your eyes blacken
 2
and as your dreams fade
 3
you are caught in a daze
 4
you wish you were no longer living.
