Vikings!

Vikings!

Beer foam in crisscrossed mustachioed nets,
trapped like silver fish in beards adorned;
blood drops and gob
slimy and rusty in the low glow
of candle flames’ triumphant glitters
for a battle won,
another sea conquered,
not far from the feast
where shiny pig skins
bubble and sizzle
in red,
like lions’ manes,
malevolent movements
in blood-polished axe blades.
