Comic Strip Affections

So this is what it’s like. This is how it feels to be the villain, to be the bad guy. This is having a superhero always at your heels, but never finding the courage in you to stop running. It’s needing the chase but never knowing if you can face a finish line. It’s wondering how many comic strip months will pass before he just gives up. Because when the hero gets bored, that’s the end of the story for the bad guy, too, ready or not. No one ever seeks out some discarded, used-to-be muse.
