Mark Young- Three Poems

in their vibration

A failure to distinguish the
ways that cells of different
species react to food in a post-
colonial context reveals only

that TV viewers tend to regard
the concept of the resurrected
child as just another act of
biomimicry performed by

humans with a similar mindset
to that which circus animals use
when imitating anything de-
signed with a cosmic reference.

A line from William Wordsworth

If you're not comfortable with
basic geometry, then pool is not
a simple game. The distinction
between simulating & actually

having a mind creates a problem
in the health care industry—
worked around only by including
translations in the supporting

information—but can start your
acting career in just one year. Un-
remembered acts can be overcome
by the effective use of visual aids.

For your next makeover

You can paint your bed-
room green—it has a
calming effect when used

as the primary color. But
an environmentally-aware
bedroom will eventually

become stale. Going out
with your girlfriends for
eggs benedict makes your

blueberries even healthier.
Fantasy is a great way
to ramp up a tired libido.
