Example text

Mauro said he and Junior had debated about killing the large boa they’d seen in the river the previous night but before they could decide it disappeared. “Spirit snake,” said Junior. ” It seemed to make sense to everyone but Steve and I. I still wasn’t sure it wasn’t just luck or a dream. The only way to prove if the ayahuasca had really allowed me to travel with the snake, I thought, was to call the people I’d seen when we returned to Iquitos. There wasn’t much to check on, of course; most of what I’d seen was typical activity for the people in the visions.

But I knew it was crazy to think I’d gone to the world of the dead, if such a place even existed. I sat on the porch, confused, angry, abandoned, unable to distinguish one reality from the other, the dreams from the visions. And then Julio’s song caught me, and I was a snake. I was not traveling with a snake. I didn’t see a snake. I simply knew I was a snake, or that the snakeness in me had come out for a time. It was fun, sensual. I invited the mosquitoes and other insects to land on me, watched them with flat eyes, then ate them.

I thought of the sexual connotations of the monkey in the banana peel and resigned myself to the homosexual implications of the naked giant. I was disgusted with what I thought was my mind playing a cruel joke on my sensibilities, but as I moved closer I realized I was not titillating myself with a secret urge so much as I was being driven to confront myself. The closer I moved towards it, the more awful the thought of having sex with the giant became; simultaneously I felt I was supposed to embrace it, deal with the implications.
