collection of a magpie

A magpie does not steal, it collects
It takes small shiny objects and bring them into the nest
Wedged between feathers, twigs and dry leaves, it creates a small collection of enchanting failures

A magpie embodies the spirit of the collector

In its nest, like within a collection, objects replace desires
To arrange, classify, select, and sort, just like memory exercises
A space for reconstruction
