“all aboard” it
is what they say
about hype trains,,
perhaps you’ve heard

(when ppl are
excited..
anticipatory.
salivating.
for
[insert general
pop culture
phenomena here]
they say:
“all aboard
the hype train!”
)

not long ago,
Fallout 4 fell out
and hype trains
for gaming nerds like me
arrived globally,
impacting productivity
negatively
in measurable levels,
(but increasing
happiness,,
too)

soon, the
Star Wars
hype machine
will hit
critical mass
and said train
will veer into
stations and depots
worldwide,
fulled up with
nostalgic happy
(and many more cashes – )

football nerds
will (eventually, inevitably)
haz their superbowl..

the series finale happens,
the new line is shown..

and i haz my own
trains to hail..
(Dark.Souls.III.)
you as well – –

all of us..

and then we
get (need) more…

(and why?)

and because:
this. is. not. it.
. . . .
this mundane world,
(mundo,
ho hum,)
this flat rock,
this,
this. is. not. it.

we
(i, you, all of us)
are preemptive
junkies
for futures
that are
(inevitably)
better, more,
hyper..

we struggle
to always want
what we got,
cuz what we
could (!!!) have
is
(inevitably)
better, more,
hyper..

and we
hype trainists. .
we evangelists,
proselytizers,
pushers for
[insert general
pop culture
phenomena here]
all inadvertently
take up mantles
seductively similar
to (the true)
mantle of
(the true)
evangelists,
proselytizers,
pushers
for (the true)
future arrival
of (the true)
hype ,..

the one that
(you know)
fully delivers
(inevitably,
infinitely)
to the point
that:
hype.
itself.
loses.
its.
hype.
to the point
that:
actual.
arrival.
happens.

(say what?)

say:
Jesus is returning
as promised,
as hyped.
God wins.
all tears wiped,
death dead,
wrongs righted,
darkness lit up,
evil declawed,
mundo healed
and made
mundo no more… –

get hype!!
this is the one!!!
coming soon!!
meme it!
gif it!
preach it on
the facebooks!!
hallelujah!!!

forget what you heard
and believe this hype . .
and remember:
the next time
you hear the whoo-whoooooo
of a hype train…. (?)
:
it’s only a
rumbling on the tracks . .
a fore-echo,
foreshadow of something
else,, (more)
something real . .
the fulfillment of:
excited..
anticipatory.
salivating.
..
. . .
.
the thing that
has made
excited waiting
a thing
