Camelot_drabble Prompt: pt 458: Maypole
Author's Notes: Theoretically, this is very slightly dub-con if you squint hard enough. Unbetaed, Maypole is said to be representative of the axis mundi — or world centre — where the sky and the earth connect and four cardinal directions meet. It has also been interpreted as a phallic symbol because of pagan fertility rites.
