Crystal Skull by Milenko Županović

It has long dreamed
about them,
read all the books
mystical work of
ancient peoples
Latin America,
object from the ground
a perfect work
of human hands
the remains
of his works
buried deep
in the woods,
skull stared at him
a prisoner
to their pyramid
human heads
were rolling down
a machete was flashed
to his head
died in the arms
of a skeleton
The crystal skull
is looking towards
the surface of the lake
The lake was red,
the color of the blood
of the martyrs
of the sacred pyramids.
