When I saw the "The Fountain" movie recommended to science fiction fans, it took my attention to the continuous references they made to Xibalba, the Mayans' underworld, who conceived death as a building and. I love movies that make me write.
(In the ninth level lives Death)
To the underworld
the sun travels every night as dying jaguars
tying point lights
with its continuous scorching by sulfur labyrinths.
When we were left there,
became the white dwarfs
in tree roots. These,
were extended until forming the Earth.
The soul will be branches
raised to open new skies
where wander the wandering for rebirth.
More stars will explode
that to the everything and to the nothing
however deep they are,
threaten to bite the dawn.
The Mayans predicted:
“In the end, the last thing you see are Xibalba’s doors).
