The Promise of Glittering Specks

Wheat background

The Promise of Glittering Specks

some
glittering specks in chaff extrusions
are vomited out from the guts of
reaping machines of perfect vision and
efficiency
many spit out bits of us
post threshing
lifeless and
light brown stalks stems and seeds

some
glittering specks cling to the
insides of chutes
escaping showers of shucks
eventually embedded back
into the soil where they came from
some
glittering specks will grow leafy and tall
bearing glittering seeds for the meal
meant to
nourish us back into being
Human again.
