Not cut cut for the stage
Last but not least. That's how I was introduced at a poetry contest. Of course some in the audience yelled out 'it's about time'. My poetry presentation bombed. I was 12.
The next time I went on stage was at the Baby O strip joint. The audience, both men, were bombed. Does nothing for your self esteem. I was 18.
Those were my two attempts at being on stage.
