Poem 20160403

i was your biggest fan
i followed your every move
every performance
every public utterance
all your social media accounts

when we met i froze
my hands wouldn’t work
and my mouth wouldn’t work
i swear it was like
i had been chewing on bees

you didn’t wait for me
to snap out of it
offered no reassuring smile
just a quick look at your watch
and you were gone
your flunky pressing a poster
into my hands

i have your poster still
i signed it for you
“to my biggest fan”
