My poem, "An Empty Stage" has been nominated by the Predators and Editors Poll. Please take a minute to read it, then follow the link if you want to vote for me.

Come back tomorrow for more on author Harry Gilleland and his book, "Poetic Musings of an Old Fat Man."


Coiled torso frozen on an empty stage,

a living sculpture trapped and placed

with no gown of tulle to hide her age

but with weeping knees below her waist.

Framed in light her insides groan

with pent up passion poised for release,

she now waits long and alone

for rhythm to carry her into peace.

But I remember her unencumbered

prance, so light for one who was held down

by unfulfilled dreams remembered,

floating above her tattered gown.
