Coming Soon

By Lee A. Nelson

He sat there

plain as a plant

ostracized too long

ignored even longer

and always grew.

Nobody noticed

he fed himself

until he ate it all.

Then he ate them.

He was full at the time

but he persevered

and like beer

evolved to enjoy it.

That part was easy.

Those he ate knew this

far better than he does.

Those he ate knew it all

far better than he ever will.

 

And here he comes.

She is not coming

at least not fast enough.

And they?

He is here.

They end. 

They will be damned

damned for their love's

audacity.  Who knew?

He insisted love

all along.

All of his lovers did too.

After all, he was only

a disciple.
