Are You Hexed?

Have you ever entertained the notion that someone has hexed you? Might a dejected lover have put a needle into one of those voodoo dolls? It’s almost nice to think you have a say in the matter and that your failures are simply punishments for misdeeds. Such gentle psychoses can be comforting. Alas, you would have been great, if it weren't for a misstep. Anything is better than facing the cosmic indifference of the universe—which offers little reason or explanation other than that life is a Spencerian struggle in which the fittest rises to the top of the heap by outdoing all those below.
