an Uncomfortable Note, circa 1994 by ted giffin
Let’s settle this like civil neanderthals.
Do you drag your women around by the hair? Cro-Magnon, perhaps?
Do you wear a hood?
Be my executioner.
Step up the guillotine, public stoning public lynching,
ascending…with my pez dispenser of XANAX.
Cliche fiery melancholic artist, clueless,
a Rebel without a Clue.
I am like a bull. I see RED and I CHARGE!
Do you see red?
The difference between us?
You are a Misanthrope whereas I am a Chameleon.
Let’s join forces! You and I against the World!
First we conquer France, take the Rhine, and then on to Mighty Mother Russia!
Trash. I’m Trash? You’re Trash? Take Out the Trash!
a fly trapped in a web. a moth. a cocoon. a butterfly. blooming.
I walk and THEY turn their heads.
I eat meat. I like dead animals. I wear leather jackets and leather shoes!
And I SPIT IN THE FACE OF GOD!
