“i wanna kill a tech bro”

i wanna murder

a rich millenial

i wanna grab him by his undercut and scream,

“look at me,

look at what you’ve forgotten

look at the reincarnation

of the impolite and failures of life.”

i wanna strangle

a hip university tech bro

i wanna cut off his head and mount it and

carry it to columbia university and say

“i’ve killed the best of what you had to offer and

here is my art piece.

here is my art piece.

hand me a scholarship or two and i’ll kill whatever you throw at me

whatever promising future you give me

from whatever old loins you’ve been reusing.”

i wanna murder

a rich millenial

and paint myself with his

beautiful blood

and walk into the nearest art studio and say

“i am your ally

i am your friend

here is the skin

of an old man recycled

and i’ve brought it to you to make it

something new.

something real art.

something

real.

give me your money or i’ll

kill you, too.

i am a fucking artist and that means

i will kill you, too.”
