Ode to the Odious

I see not a revealer but
the Jim Jones sort of black-hole soul
which must suck others into its influence
and otherwise is only its own implosion.
It must feed its need free beings
whom it subsumes into its vampire mass.
The more it has, the more it has to have;
its black gravity grows asymptotically
towards absolute impaction.
It would drown out the howl
of its black-hole heart with the hosannas
of its victims, an atom of its blackness
lodged, a ticking malignancy,
in the brain, the spine, the mind
of each needy believer.
