when the splash of your mind awoke me

(for my secret lover)

By Mish Murphy

i was encased in plastic

you unwrapped me

with your Viking teeth

soon your dick

was a Medieval mace


that got tangled up in

my blond braids


you growled at me

from deep inside

your heavy armor


i howled back

like a mournful


battle horn—
