what has grown from the wheat?
why you have of course
out of the frost
born when all else dies.
you stand in the field
as though it were eden
combines are moving forward and taking
but i am
i am not a farmer
so i see some things differently
growing out of the wheat
growing out past the fallen stalked-corn
frost and the taste of fall hold nothing over you
as you stretch muscles
walk away into the noon hour sadness.
