his first big competition

this wasn't the school concert hall
these were strangers called the audience

he could hear them cheering
just before the curtain rose
that's when he fainted

  2. A great response to the challenge, Gillena. Stage fright keeps the victim ever standing just offstage, terrified to cross that threshold into the glare where destiny awaits. (Or maybe polite applause.)

  7. It takes a brave fool, to stand while the curtain goes up, and there he be, in all his splendor. I enjoyed reading.
