Two Poems by Mark Young

ephemera stranglehold

I thought our block was mostly
north facing in order to adapt to
changes in light. I know less about
clothing. Just because something
doesn’t do what you hoped it
would do, you won’t want to
waste your money on excess
packaging. Winnings can be

calculated by multiplying one’s
continuing health by the number of
private gardens in Japan. Now that
the swivel chairs have been chosen
we will end the afternoon with a
few topical musical contributions.

varied expressions of the other’s corporeality

At another time they would roll
back the conflicting operation &
forward an economical option for
boat owners. We do not know
what kind of aggressive techniques
were used, couldn’t find any other
relevant products or a quantitative
explanation. It’s crystal clear that

there is no current, due to decreased
investment in new facilities & a
lack of enthusiasm for finding a new
way to conceive the creative work.
Everyday vessels never wait long
enough to adapt to changes in light.
