Here I go. This poem of mine was written a long ago. Please post a comment. Thanks.
The empty house
There come I for rebuilding my place.
Suddenly, improper words thrown onto my face.
Till, somehow, I realized such a fool I have been.
Stoned, bruised, ruined to death, lacking esteem.
Bottom-up, spider webs involve the owner’s soul
Pale looks, brooding postures, fear touches and cold.
Disrupted lives, shallow-hearted, impure behaviour
Bleaches up morning daylight, no one of me being a saviour.
Echoes shower the site, once filled with glittering smiles
Nothing else stays the same, in place, only rest dirty files.
T’ house now, all withdrawn into silence, abandoned in it, afterwards
There remained debris of empty spirits, whining inner wars.
Milton P. Jr.

I have won
Waking up with tears,
Running down my face.
Seems to be familiar,
Around this ol' place.
By everyone's heart.
Stories about crime,
And how we fall apart.
Our laughter had faded,
More than years ago.
Yet we carry our smiles,
So nobody will know.

2011 Statistics of Female Contributors of Literary Magazines and Journals
On 27 February, Women in Literary Arts [VIDA] published statistics on the percentage of female reviewers, contributors, and authors that appeared in 14 established literary magazines and journals in 2011.
In 2010, the organization, VIda: Women In literary arts, took on a seemingly simple project: to count the rates of publication between women and men in many of our writing world’s most respected literary outlets.
VIDA: We decided to count as what we frequently heard people say about gender discrimination in the publishing world was entirely anecdotal, so we counted. We made some very attractive pie charts to illustrate some very disturbing numbers.
Here is the results for 2011 statistics on VIDA website
