We pay our blood debt
with pain and gore
for our vessels’ futile hope
that some new Nanahuatzin
will be able to use it.
(Try and guess what this is about.)
i’m gonna go out on a limb and say…
the aztec ritual of sacrifice to provide lifeblood so that the god who became the sun (nanahuatzin) may rise again, except in a somewhat apocalyptic vein???
