Sometimes I Feel, Two

Sometimes I feel
uninvited to the dinner
that was my idea
as I listen to fun bantering
whizzing past my ears to the corner of the room.
Maybe that's where my self-worth went.

Sometimes I Feel, One

Sometimes I feel
like the wrong number dialed.
Turned sour on the receiver
by quiet breathing at the ear
was a lost Aunt
or second wife of the father I never knew.
