Life AffirmingTo John Bryan's previous piece

Huitzilopochtli, post - conquest
One had defeated the other -
The greater delusion wins :
the letters emit
their own plummage,
adorn his name as
pigments in the wings
of the butterfly most brilliant,
stuck and sticked
by silver pins
dried out like dust
encrypted into cases,
and displayed
at expense / priceless :
this one is the last.
the only ones 
i collect
are imaginary.
