back@work

the InFrontMyOffice flag
raises fluttering cotton arms, happily
saluting New Year

throaty beeps escape
her square, white womb and
i badge in

last year’s dust,
contains my fingerprints, scattered loosely
on the keyboard

your kiss lingers
still, softly promising, between my
business dressed thighs

.

we’re writing Jack Collom Lunes at dVerse today…get your pens ready and stop by when Sam opens the pub doors at 3pm EST..

  1. ha, i like these…the beep from the womb…very creative way to put badging in…and that last one…ah, the thoughts of being back home…i still have a few days of break so i imagine that monday i will feel much the same…smiles..nice heat in that last one too…

  2. Geez this is good. For a short poem it contains a wealth of ideas that spark other ideas, that bring into flame yet other thoughts consuming the present with memories. Inspired.

  3. I have the week off to read more great poetry such as this. Square White Womb. Womb is an oft used word in my poetry…It carries so much…pun intended. I blush at the last line of reality.

  4. Hi Claudia – I also especially liked one’s fingerprints in last year’s dust, and the lovely sensuality of the poem too. The private in the workplace – and the badging in. Ha. k.

  5. Ha, I love the “InFrontMyOffice flag” line. And this one in particular:

    last year’s dust,
    contains my fingerprints, scattered loosely
    on the keyboard

    I’m loving this form.

  6. Back to work? I’m beginning to wonder how you ever get out of bed! 😉 Awesome write…think your better half could give my better half some lessons? Whoops…just kidding…really 😀

  7. I would have known this as your work from a hundred others. Your elastic lines, full of sound and color, shining your inevitable sensuality. great work, Claudia.

  8. nice job of linking these together to fully fill out a story. Really like the creativity you showed here with the compressed wording in the first lune, like that a lot. Very nicely done Claudia.

  9. Hey, “InFrontMyOffice” just because German and Eskimo-Aleut languages love to agglutinate morphemes — don’t touch my English! (smile)

    in “her square, white womb”, who is “her”?

    Fun images

    And you kept to the word count rules — bravo! Albeit with some agglutination liberties! 🙂

  10. Maybe my imagination is a little awry, but in your flowing words you appear to paint a scenario of a business like woman who is entering the new year with remnants of the past still echoing on her computer.
    Altogether I enjoyed reading it as your writing leaves my imagination wide open
    Emu

  11. the form here is so useful getting to the heart of things…I think ‘tight; is the word i hear so much on this website to describe how so much is said in so few words written….i like this very much…you are so brave, claudia 😉

  12. ..aww… your third reflects my plea when i got back to work face to face with my pc… keyboards looked like a fossilized figure of our fingers… what a picturesque.. loved it… smiles…

  13. I seem to be combining thighs with last year’s dust. Dusty thighs. Ackkkk.

    But when read the second time it is sex all over. Great. ~Mary

  14. Sorry I have been lax, Claudia, to visit your site but the holidays came upon me and would not let go. Now they are gone I can visit. I like this post. You take your words and make going back to work filled with imagery not even thought of.

  15. “throaty beeps escape
    her square, white womb and
    i badge in

    last year’s dust,
    contains my fingerprints, scattered loosely
    on the keyboard…”

    Hi! Claudia…
    I like the way…You have captured in your poetic words the feeling Of returning to work…as you remember[ed] a… kiss that lingered…
    Thanks, for sharing!
    deedee 🙂
