Decorating for Christmas

he positions her in the center of the room.
he raises her bound wrists and,
through the rope restraining her hands,
inserts the heavy hook looming above their heads.

he pushes her legs apart
with his foot
with his cane
with his knee.

he encases first one and then the other ankle
in green hemp, threading the loose ends through
the holes in a pair of cinder blocks.

he steps back.
he admires his raw materials.
he admires her bare white skin.
he admires her nipples, cloned
it would seem
from Rudolph's red nose.

he examines the collection of ornaments acquired over the years.
he makes his first selection and approaches the trembling tree.
he clamps the gleaming golden bell to the most obvious protuberance.

the tree screams as sap runs down its thighs.


Merry Christmas.
Perhaps tomorrow I should write about some alternate uses for Hanukah candles...

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah. I hope the light shines bright for you in the coming days and the coming year.

OG, now that's an original idea, one I haven't thought of.
I think I'll ask my sub to come up with some ideas.
Have a good one.
Warm hugs,
