CHAPTER XXIII - Huitzilopochtli's Night

Down the road of the uneasy
You track the grey dog home
To his house in the heart of a traitor,
A thief, a murderer of dreams.

And you kill him there with one stroke,
Crying: Huitzilopochtli, is this well done?
That your sleep be not as a cemetery
Where dogs creep unclean.'

The song ceased, and there was silence. Then Cipriano beckoned to the men to bring forward the peon with the black cross painted on his front and back. He limped forward.
Cipriano: `What man is that, limping?'
Guards: `It is Guillermo, overseer of Don Ramon, who betrayed Don Ramdn, his master.'
Cipriano: `Why does he limp?'
Guards: `He fell from the window on to the rocks.'
Cipriano :` What made him wish to betray his master?'
Guards: ` His heart is a grey dog, and a woman, a grey bitch,enticed him forth.'
Cipriano: `What woman enticed the grey dog forth?' The guards came forward with the woman.
Guards: `This woman, Maruca, my Lord, with the grey bitch heart.'
Cipriano: `Is it she, indeed?' Guards: `It is she.'
Cipriano: `The grey dog, and the grey bitch, we kill, for their mouths are yellow with poison, Is it well, men of Huitzilopochtli?'
Guards: `It is very well, my Lord.'

The guards stripped the peon Guillermo of his white clothes, leaving him naked, in a grey loin-cloth, with a grey-white cross painted on his naked breast. The woman, too, had a grey white cross painted on her body. She stood in a short petticoat of grey wool.
Cipriano: `The grey dog and the grey bitch shall run no more about the world. We will bury their bodies in quick-lime, till their souls are eaten, and their bodies,
and nothing is left. For lime is the thirsty bone that swallows even a soul and is not slaked. - Bind them
