Sloan - I like the idea of your poem and you really played well with words, it's an interesting poem.
Terminal Cough - It felt too prosaic despite the rhymes and lacked unity though the idea of the square seemed interesting in the beginning.
Mura - It was a very good one, definitely. It has a lot of qualities. Only the last two verses are not as good in terms of quality as the rest of your poem, but the "yesteryear" made up for it.
mantisstalker - It was an amazing one too. A nice rhythm, I could feel so much energy in it while reading it. What's more, it's well-written and you chose well your words and rhymes. I just have a problem with the 4th verse.
KLGChaos - I chose yours. Your first two verses go against what one would usually say for new year and it's done so well, I was totally picturing the image in my head, it really was suggestive. Then, your expression of "ritualistic hedonism" is a very interesting one, especially when it's put in regards to "indifference", that gives so much more meaning to your text. And finally, your last two verses are more casual in their tone, and it fits what you say, it's a nice ending (punchline even) for your poem, a very nice one. So overall, it was a wonderfully well-written poem.
