Pan

By Catherine Bader

 

No work. No money. No food.  Hallucinations coming and going.

He tried to read some books from years ago that he’d saved.  Greek mythology.

Kept him busy.  Kept him calm.

One day, he looked in the mirror – there was hair growing everywhere – all over his body. A couple of lumps showed up on his forehead. As the days went by, he continued to change.

Mailman found on ground – gored and bloodied.

The last mail delivered to the man upstairs. They found him hanging by a cord, dead.

Walls covered with thousands of pictures and drawings of the Greek God Pan.
