Fiesta & The Fox Reviews His Prophecy
Fiesta is a sequence based on experience in Mexico of the subversive energies moving through the Mexican fiesta and the Day of the Dead; this stirringof nature and the feminine is echoed in the update of the mysterious anonymous 19th Century ballard, The Fox's Prophecy.

The Death of Quetzalcoatl

There was a tree
its arms were open
there was a snake
lord of the water

the tree bore a child
he killed the feathered snake
now there is only one
the rest is evil
the tree is dead

Corn wheat maize
the three loaves
we can eat them in turn
the tree the serpent the child
each born again.
