I’m all out of dough,
but I can offer you kernels of corn
in exchange for a place to be
for a while

Do you have Hopi Maize?

Black Aztec and Zamorano Amarillo as well,
enough to plant that field yonder

You can stay until the harvest is over
if you help me plant the field,
and you can take as much as you can carry
when you go

And so the wanderer strung up her hammock
in the proffered yurt
and settled down
for a while
