“California,” Tayo repeated softly, “that’s a good place for him.”
Old Grandma shook her head slowly, and closed her cloudy eyes again. “I guess I must be getting old,” she said, “because these goings-on around Laguna don’t get me excited any more.” She sighed, and laid her head back on the chair. “It seems like I already heard these stories before . . . only thing is, the names sound different.”
 
 
 
 
Whirling darkness
started its journey
with its witchery
and
its witchery
has returned upon it.
 
Its witchery
has returned
into its belly.
 
Its own witchery
has returned
all around it.
 
Whirling darkness
has come back on itself.
It keeps all its witchery
to itself.
 
It doesn’t open its eyes
with its witchery.
 
It has stiffened
with the effects of its own witchery.
It is dead for now.
It is dead for now.
It is dead for now.
It is dead for now.
Sunrise,
accept this offering,
Sunrise.
