Wheat

Throwing our young, apostolic bodies 

Into the gears of the field 

To slow the churn of angry dark.

It will consume us.

But may it grind our bones into

Fine, fine seed

That springs to harvest

Multiplication through mutilation 

Forsaking only that which our hero did—which

Was everything.
