“Like a magpie, I am a scavenger of shiny things: fairy tales, dead languages, weird folk beliefs, fascinating religions, and more.” Laini Taylor
She knew that her friends
wondered how much more
stuff she would bring home from
her various treasure hunts around
the opportunity shops,
she cared little for their wondering,
after all, what some would call an
addiction she would brush aside with
– I’m doing my bit for charity,
but even she knew the house was full,
her shiny treasures were piling up
on top of each other in every corner,
she always owned that she magpied,
only men were elusive.
