Awkward Society

A wisp of thought
sails across the crowded room
gliding from person to person
bobbing on breaths
of smoky conversation

The bouncing balloon
hovers at my table
I snatch with greasy fingers
slippery with thoughts of their own

Shameful, artless fumbling
with cherry cheeks, I laugh
boisterously loud
but do not smile

Silent, awkward pause
I excuse myself from the table
to wash my hands and
think of something witty to say.
