Prompt #303: Now that’s awkward!

Complete this simile,

“AS AWKWARD AS ______________”

A visit to the “Sex toy removal Doctor”

The day you walk in
you try not to look
at the other ones waiting
you hang your coat on a hook

Everyone stays
with their eyes looking down
Being here’s worse
than seeing a clown

No matter what music
or noise in the air
you all know you’re waiting
but speak? No one’ll dare.

Out the nurse comes
calling your name
as awkward as knowing
that you even came.

The Sunday Whirl: Wordle #473

Words:  face, flex, loon, tense, times, joy, bloom, moon, present, wrinkle, reflect, overcome

You can overcome

When times get real tense 
and joy seems so far 
remember your face 
and the person you are 

you’ll loosen some stress 
by the light of the moon 
If you flex your neck 
like the neck of a loon 

Try not to resist 
Feeling wind as it blows 
Seeing how the birds fly 
how a flower bloom grows 

Be present in life 
just a wrinkle in time 
Reflect on your blessings 
Overcome those sublime
