I AM QUETZALCOATL, AND IN MY TIME I HAVE BEEN PRE-COLUMBIAN AGRICULTURAN DEITY, LEGENDARY RULER, SYMBOL OF NATIVE IDENTITY, STANDARD-BEARER

FOR REVOLUTION, AND MODERNIST ICON!

I HELD SWAY OVER THE TEMPLES AND PYRAMIDS OF TEOTIHUACAN, THE GREAT FORTRESSES

OF MITLA AND MONTE ALBAN AND THE BALL COURTS OF CHICHEN ITZA! PEOPLE FELT FEAR AND TERROR WHEN THEY ENTERED MY PRECINTS!

I MADE

WIND-WHIPPED

LAKE TEXCOCO SURGE OVER ITS SHORES AND FLOOD THE CITY OF TENOCHTITLN AND THE TEMPLE OF HUITZILOPOCHTLI BURST SPONTANEOUSLY INTO FLAME!

PSYCHODELICATES HAVE ADOPTED ME AS AN ICON FOLLOWING A FASCINATION WITH THE MACABRE NATURALISM AND MONUMENTALITY OF MESOAMERICAN CIVILISATION!
