Mark Young – one poem

 

geographies: Mallorca

                           I neglect my talents,
              skim a book from the
                    shelf. American tanks
                        come to a halt in front of
               an elegant gay-friendly
            lifestyle-focused yoga
                   boutique b&b in a

              previously undiscovered
                         replication of true crime
                     new york city. Walkways
                          lead clearly through
                 the rural patchwork of
                     wheat fields & olive
                       groves. A Kurdish app 

                    created exclusively for
                       the Pink Ribbon cause
            gives me regular re-
                     minders from hot guys
                to check my breasts.
                     Every member of staff
                   goes the extra mile.

 

 

 

Mark Youngs most recent books are the e-book Asemic Colon from The Red Ceilings Press, & The Codicils, a 600-page selection of poems written in the past four years, out from Otoliths.
