Red Feather, Blue Feather

Red feather, blue feather
The secrets keep her awake at night.
Rock wolves surround the temple floor.
Black panther stands at the door.
 Monkeys scream,
 the birds take flight.
 Caves purge when bats alight.
 Another man will die tonight. 

I dreamt of a time and place I’ve never been to before. Palenque – Palenque, Mexico – Atlas Obscura
