“… we are just disposable, fungible goods, like so many ears of corn — all of us consuming and waiting to be consumed, until our husks are thrown away.”

“Sometimes I look back five months ago to that day at Jill’s and think that, maybe, we had all gotten what we deserved. That maybe the Changed had come to teach us a hard lesson we no longer remembered: that life is special; from cradle to grave, life is infinitely valuable because we each only get just one.

Or maybe they came to show us that we are just disposable, fungible goods, like so many ears of corn — all of us consuming and waiting to be consumed, until our husks are thrown away.

Maybe those two lessons are the same.

Either way, if the Changed came to teach, then we’ve learned their lessons well.”
