A Lament

Seated at an overcrowded bar
drinking an overpriced beer
mind overstimulated
body not at all relaxed
grasping for vocabulary
that is not overused

failing

staring
at the table next to me

eavesdropping
on a conversation

hoping
they’ll say something
more interesting
than what I’m thinking

dressed for mediocrity
but I’m trying a new dish on the menu

that is so not like me
