to all the anxious and raging women of my subconscious sky..
I am dizzy in a haze of rage
I am Huitzilopochtli
Pesadillas, night mirrors
pesa mucho mi Tonalli, mi día está tintada
I dreamt I killed someone..
slitting their throat,
the blood rushed out like a river,
I dragged the body,
tossed it to the side of the front porch, where the head fell off,
gracing my shoulder,
staining it with blood,
I tossed the head separately..
I killed him out of defense, not malice, and without hesitation..
How does one bounce back from such an act,
heart of Coyolxauhqui
as I recall feelings with intense heaviness,
energy weighing me down to Mictlan,
paralyzing..stupefying like Coyolxauhqui!
I need rest, I need mictlan
I spoke aloud in my dream
echoing into the waking dream,
“Pa que dice que si !?”
yohualli mestli kochitta self!
Let’s play a game called,
how fast can I mourn you..
get over your role in my life,
as these steps form a circle,
and my steps do not cycle back to you,
he was half in, half out, like mestli
I felt it, seeing into the obsidian,
cold as mestli at night
the weight, the voices
Where are they coming from?
I felt the lust of many distant women, tzitzimime? Cihuateteotl?
Is that you?
Pulling him in all four directions,
Sensations dismembering me like Coyolxauhqui, I heard the whispers of many faceless women,
exclaimed the classic machista
lurking subconscious! Sharp as flint! Huntress!
Can I honestly say I was surprised? to find photos and chats,
that downplayed our might,
“There is no only”.. silly Tochtli...
Clairvoyance and audience, you say so many things, that hurt to hold,
made our ancestors sigh,
I have not recovered since our last storm, Tlalok, I have not recovered..
the urgency to hold close,
to know what next step to take, do we bend or break?
I become Ehecatl, In and out of your direction,
I wake and feast on anxiousness,
blood rushing rivers in my heart, slowing down,
I can feel my heart closing,
His tekpatl sharp defense, crafting the finest smoky mirror,
How easy it is to battle,
sensitivity becoming intensity I feast on his smoky lies,
my throat chokes up..
remolds me, scolds me “Chac! Look into your bowl! Awaken petite toti!”
Mehua! I am the dream champion! cogenerating experiences
and cohabiting feelings
I am the serpents that split and shift the earth's skin,
dreaming seeds in the earth,
Nerves like feathers of precious serpents, Vitality like Malinalli..
Slow movements, Slow responses, Growing..
and growing.. so slow,
no one knows..
Hair so rich, so thick, I am the coils of the earth and winds..
scavenger within, Ey, Ay ya ya, Tlazolteotl Must I have to stay to watch our garden die?
“No! We will fertilize the lies, for nothing dies, so cry
and be refreshed, transition! coily one!”
“Open your mouths and be reborn nenetl, nenepilli!” Dice Toci,
Our divine scavenger,
the scavenger within, charged
my eyes retreat, they go blank, I feast on grief,
rivers of silent tears..
I bathe and dive ako ixayotl, Itta mo!
Let the dead be dead, Axcan, transition!
the death of a life free from heaviness,
the death of a life matchless to a committed, loyal and holistic precious twin,
I have many precious twins in one,
many in one, 400 hahas
the death of these scars of psychic intelligence, Psychic waste, “la basura no existe“
“Axcan! Let us feast!”
the battled and discarded,
Dice toci con sus kozkakuauhtli
