Running the ample gamut between love,
hate, religion, war, always shifting states.
Double exchange mechanisms prefer
the ferromagnetic metallic phase of guns,
kitchen knives, keys flung to the ground.
Manganites a family of volatile temperament,
tantrums and a tendency to phase separate
whenever the heat is on, the going gets
tough. In the Gaza Strip, or a suburb of London,
communities console themselves.
Someone somewhere wraps arms and
explosives around a creed-crazed youth,
enhancing the conductivity peak with promises
of glory, money, a state of grace.
