The tiller bucked and groanedat the job, but with each pass I sawa perfect blankness, like I'd been loaneda second life in which to growa third. The sun sat on its porchand smiled. I wondered if the dirtwould be enough, a kind of torchto set inside our lives to say, we'll grow our food like this, our planswill look like this like soil squaredand measured into beds by a mansweating through his shirt with effort.In dirt is one life we can chooseto make.
