At The Intersection Of The Cross

The sun sets †
The rain falls † †
The jungle decays, and cycles begin a new: † †
† † †
†† † † † †Daylight ends † † where the other world † †  
†† † † † †turns upside down † †  
†† † † † †across the sky. † †
†† † † † †The stars † †
(hungry eyes) ride the scales † †
on the crocodile's back, on the river to Xibalba: † †
† †  
The black water consumes the rain forest, † †
it floods the foot prints of ancestors: Howling unfed spirit dogs † †
from a billion-trillion pinpoints of light, piercing illusions † †
in dense undergrowth: † †
†† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †Mother Jaguar, ancient steward, † †
watches with ruthless grace † † † † † † † † our slow drift toward destiny, † †
our pulsing † †
†††††††††††††††††††† †beating† †  
†††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††† † † † † † sacrifice † †  
in hand.
