Quetzalcoatl


The Feathered Serpent
ruled land and sky
a supernatural deity
worshiped for his duality.
When the Fourth Sun
perished in the flood
he traveled deep
beneath the Earth
created a Fifth World
by espousing his own blood
through self-inflicted wounds
to transfuse the bones
of the living dead.
