I saw, of course, a single magpie, since I am plagued by them these days: every day brings worse and worse luck. But within the blink of my eye, I saw a second magpie. I checked. Yes, for real. Two for joy. What joy? What joy? Today, at last, there must be joy. Tell me what joy there will be.

“I need you pure I need you clean
Don’t try to enlighten me
Power to misconstrue
What have they done to you

Infants in infantry
Rewrite their history
Uproot their colony
You’re ripe for harvesting

Virgin cells to penetrate
Too premature to permeate
They can’t elucidate
Never thought i was the enemy

I am the plague
I am the plague”
