Zea Mays

To Die by the Corn

She says,
Behold me
Behold me for I know of wisdom
For in a sacred manner I am moving
And I know her way back to the ancestral clans
The waiting is over
She passes through the maze
She says,
I eat of her
And she eats of me
Eating my way out of mortality
She breathes dragon flies
Nymphs beneath the icy night
Wolf cries to the sacred hoop
Yellow bear eats buffalo down South in Mexico
Polar bear eats man
And bald eagles gather bones
Turtle turning over to eat the cactus thorns
She says,
It is way too late
For the winged, finned, insects
And even for the four legged ones
And those others with hands
Hunted by others with horns
By then they shall all die by the hands
Of the one who eats of her corn
