if in the old days

by blake ellington larson

before the medieval days
before the baby jesus days
and the pagan turned christian days
the romans had fashion magazines
and fashion media
they’d all be walking around
with their placid cocks out
stroking and strutting their stuff
in famously lit coliseums
while tigers
elephants
and giraffes
mauled at their genitals

(2004)
