JD Scott Boys for MÃªlÃ©e Militarized children practice at killing. Tadpoleâwho never learned how to ï¬re a gunâpicks up a musket. His cheeks are rosy like an out-of-practice drag queen, like a child sneaking in front of Motherâs mirror and sliding lipstick twice: eyes below eyes. Who wouldnât want to look this good in epaulettes and poke holes through a rookery of balloons? So much pop, a surplus of blood. Do you break out pots to catch all the slush? This is the goal of the mmo: to shoot, to win. His avatar bandies with a bayonet, froggy limbs embracing that sleek passado. One thousand miniÃ© balls shawled up in the pages of an instruction manual. This is how armies are built behind keyboard and dial tone, toy soldiers painted over in unknowable colors.
