precious eagle cactus fruit
The heart, referred to as “precious eagle cactus fruit,” was cut from the live victim and burned on a fire in the temple.
Sean J. Mahoney
Sean lives with his wife, her parents, three dogs, and an Uglydoll in Santa Ana, CA. They have been there a year now. The palateras frequent their street and ring their bells. They ring their bells quite often. With the help of aspirin and water Sean recovers. Sean works in geophysics after studying literature and poetry in school (go figure). Subsurface imaging is what they call it though Mr. Mahoney is convinced all they do in the end is verify that many of those who walk the surface were actually created within the Crust.

what was said
A cold and slow afternoon plays host
They will put a 9-year old
The girl was nine and born
I can see east through
The thing is that someone
I open the glass door.
A cold and slow afternoon.
