CHAPTER XVI - Cipriano and Kate

So he passed the yellow one, who lashed like a dragon in vain.
And having passed the yellow one, he saw the earth beneath.
And he saw Mexico lying like a dark woman with white breast-tips.

Wondering he stepped nearer, and looked at her,
At her trains, at her railways and her automobiles,
At her cities of stone and her huts of straw,
And he said: Surely this looks very curious!

He sat within the hollow of a cloud, and saw the men that worked in the fields, with foreign overseers.
He saw the men that were blind, reeling with aguardienie.
He saw the women that were not clean.
He saw the hearts of them all, that were black, and heavy, with a stone of anger at the bottom.

Surely, he said, this is a curious people I have found!

So leaning forward on his cloud, he said to himself:
I will call to them.
Hold! Hold! Mexicanos! Glance away a Moment towards me.
Just turn your yes this way, Mexicanos!

They turned not at all, they glanced not one his way.

Holald! Mexicanos! Holald!

They have gone stone deaf! he said.

So he blew down on them, to blow his breath in their faces.
But in the weight of their stupefaction, none of them knew.

Holald! What a preity people!
All gone stupefied!

A falling star was running like a white dog over a plain.
He whistled to it loudly, twice, till it fell to his hand.
In his hand it lay and went dark.
It was the Stone of Change.

This is the stone of changel he said.

So he tossed it awhile in his hand, and played with it.
Then suddenly he spied the old lake, and he threw it in. It fell in.
And two men looked up.
I3olald! he said. Mexicanos!

Are there two of you awake?
So he laughed, and one heard him laughing.
Why are you laughing? asked the first man of Quetzalcoatl.
