Quatrain of Corn Mother

Mythical figure among North
American Indian Tribes

Sacrificially faint, rubbing corn
from her body where few hands

Fostering children along the
trails of the hungry, out on the

Corn Mother, acting to preserve
the Spirit, staring death in the eye,

Chased from the wilderness
when discovered, she was born
of a lie.
