Ungood With People

I am ungood with people
not bad
just ungood
unable not to make conversations uncomfortable
unable not to say the wrong thing
at the worst moment
with the best intentions

Things get problematic
when I interact with others
who are also ungood with people
since we create a lethal circle of ungoodness
that bites its own tail
and ultimately leaves us all standing around
in embarrassed silence

Even this poem
is making you feel awkward
and edge away gently
hoping I won’t notice until it’s too late
and then will just let you go
