Ugh, I can't remember the name of the story, but it was in Omni.  I remember reading it.

Oh no, not the Omni! (inside joke).

The composer was Pergolesi ... who died in real life when 26.

Sadly, that isn't getting to the piece I want to hear.  Anything more specific?

The super rich are injecting blood from teenagers to gain ‘immortality’



OK, who didn't see this coming?

I could try this for free, I think.
There's often a bunch of young people hanging out in a nearby, abandoned appartment building.
I think they even have the syringes at hand.
This will work out swell.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.
