Deep End

I treat groups of people like a cold pool

Checking the temperature with a smile

A nod

Dipping my toes in

Insert “relevant comment here”

Slowly wading into conversation

The chilly water reaches my chest

I hold my breath

At last submerging my head

Mustering the courage to introduce myself

Excusing myself would mean starting over again
