Scene4 Magazine: Claudine Jones
Claudine Jones
Who are you

goes 'boom' inside you
you are that thing
no effort on your part
transmission gratis

The trick is not to panic at exclusion
that is not possible
you might fear it is
but experience will convince—
you'll know the signs
particulars are completely irrelevant
only the contact is important

Cutting it off to spite yourself
just postpones it
you could be on your death bed still waiting
but frequency is as unimportant
as length. Like orgasm, comparison is moot

When we flip that happy switch
just the right notes
no chattering across the aisles
no whiff of someone's cologne
no butt-numbing seat

O sweet bit of dialogue!
