So Long As It Comes Easy by Jennifer Lagier

Ah, the irony,
Camille reflects.
Her first week
of Estrogen cream
and her partner
announces he’s lost
any sex drive.
What’s a girl to do?
she wonders,
considers computer dating,
casual hookups,
discovers the
Good Vibrations website.
Studies a column titled,
“Kink for Beginners.”
Researches toys to give
herself pleasure.
The Rabbit Pearl
(originally seen
on Sex & the City)
advertises pure bliss
for only $65.
She browses
for a new lover
among their
best sellers.
