Unsafe Alien Sex

by Keith Allen Daniels

    How foolish to have forgotten
    the pinchcocks. And the tourniquet.

    A sheath for every excrescence
    would have been wise.

    But now I've grown bionic
    beyond my years, and whir

    with positive displacement
    whenever I micturate.

    Small prices, really, for all
    those memories of death.
