One Post-modern Brat

One Post-modern Brat

Give me a poem, won’t you —
you post-modern brat?
Little Daisy Minx.
Yeah, keep spinning in circles.
It reminds me of my Indie Dream.
Your ikr and ffs…
Netflix and aesthetics…
In a shower of memes,
you self-cure your existential crisis.
And for some reason,
punctuations and capitalisation
don’t exist.
But your privileged existential crisis,
it still does exist.
Oh, you millennial biscuit!
You drive this Beatnik mad.
