The Evil Eye Analysis

It comes oozing

out of flowers at night,

it comes out of the rain

if a snake looks skyward,

it comes out of chairs and tables

if you don't point at them and say their names.

It comes into your mouth while you sleep,

pressing in like a washcloth.

Beware. Beware.If you meet a cross-eyed person

you must plunge into the grass,

alongside the chilly ants,

fish through the green fingernails

and come up with the four-leaf clover

or your blood with congeal

like cold gravy.If you run across a horseshoe,


stop, take your hands out of your pockets

and count the nails

as you count your children

or your money.

Otherwise a sand flea will crawl in your ear

and fly into your brain

and the only way you'll keep from going mad

is to be hit with a hammer every hour.If a hunchback is in the elevator with you

don't turn away,

immediately touch his hump

for his child will be born from his back tomorrow

and if he promptly bites the baby's nails off

(so it won't become a thief)

that child will be holy

and you, simple bird that you are,

may go on flying.When you knock on wood,

and you do,

you knock on the Cross

and Jesus gives you a fragment of His body

and breaks an egg in your toilet,

giving up one life

for one life.
