We congregate around the vegetables on display
Pretending that we are there to select and give the final verdict of currency.
Our pretense hides our childlike wonder that these things came from friendly earth.
Wonder, that the person staring back at us is the same person that conjured a beet, a carrot, from almost nothing.
Like children, we know instinctively that we are in honest company, with the vegetables.
After all, we are all made from the same stuff.
