As I stood atop the buried pyramid, I saw the vulture flying directly toward me.
Perhaps I could have fallen to my knees and closed my eyes. But instead I raised my hands to the sky to receive its energy as it passed just above.
I welcomed the cleansing medicine of the scavenger.
There is no more room for rot in my landscape. May it be returned to nature and be transformed into food and nourishment for the future.
