IXTLALTZIN: Face of the Earth
Espejo de la Tierra Earth Mirror
The day will come
the shards of rubble,
will be swept away;
of loved ones will be carefully laid to rest in places
at that moment where
worlds that were
will also be
no more, and
Discovery brought us all a shudder of horror
to have lost they who through knowing them,
with them and of them,
The day that comes,
comes for us all.
The coldest winds before that dawn,
the shards of humans being inhuman
to each other and themselves, look for the broken places in our
look to wounds searching for caves of fear, far beyond the chasing
conscience of the One:
At that moment shall appear,
When the ground is finally clear,
A shining dust
A mirror of earth, and she will speak again.
“What have you done to my children?”
And foundations of Heaven’s Earth, respond -
In justice of war gods unbound.
