ode to corn
(the holy grain)

Oh great shape-shifter,
grown from the land, shrunken in a tin.
Your tenacity our nutrient underpin.
Schucked and husked for 9,000 years.
A scarecrow poised to save your ears.
Flint, dent, pod pop, flour and sweet.
More of you cultivated than rice or wheat.
May we retain your kernels in square
fabric sacks and hurl them into
corn-hole racks.
Oh great shape-shifter,
movie theatre comrade, propeller of cars.
Your contribution to bread, chowder,
and tortillas deserve our applause.
Your mazes, amaze.
But whence you rush my whisky glass.
A kindred spirit unites us at last.
