Picture Message (11/16)

Spirals all over the walls - outwards
Did old peoples live in whirlpools in these cliff cities

In New Mexico they left the plain and climbed the walls
Perched on ledges like puffins in Wales
They orchard themselves and slept in small rooms of mud

Above the spirals - a flute - shaft - filling with bats
They crayon the flight plan - map the winged rats?

Deep in their eyes are sucking pools
Hypnotized - moving - they leave their holes in rock
