Poetry from Mark Young


The Rōshi enters the meditation room. All is silence.

He claps his hands. "How can you tell when a persimmon is angry?" he puts to the room.

The silence deepens.


Every human being needs to feel that they are important, 
valued. Now is the time to move from rhetoric into action.

The path to sustainable development must ensure that people 
living in poverty are included. Communication styles can help.

Music can inspire. Its manifestations permit the possibility of 
a chance encounter between trans Americans & the current Pope.

À la campagne

School. Public
phone box. Un-
used hall. Over-

grown racetrack.
A gravel road
lies ahead.

DoNuts T.®ump looks to swallow up The Holy See

I can change my cookie settings
at any time, but can't change
the cookie cutter paradigm. Which 
means that if I don't get in & get a 
share of the Vatican action before 
those oligarchs arrive & buy up all the 
available building land, it’ll have to be 
the Sistine Chapel that gets pulled
down to make way for the new
Trump Vatican International Hotel.

The conspiracy fairy left me a silver dollar for my tooth

Jerry Fletcher is a man in love with a woman he observes from afar. Whoopi Goldberg questioned the Moon Landing on "The View." Jesse Ventura & his team of experts examine some of the most frightening & mysterious conspiracy allegations of contrails, which consist of ice crystals or water vapor condensed behind aircraft. Any gap in official information on such violent events is filled by online theorists proffering a "big explanation." Hoaxes go viral because the public rarely makes the distinction between conspiracy and misinformation in the aftermath of tragedy.

Secret schemes that shaped the world around us are hiding in the footnotes of our history books—you just need to know where to look. Urbandictionary.com is being used for governmental purposes. The government is finding out ways to control us, through an event or set of circumstances created as the result of a usually secret plot by powerful conspirators. Secretary Wolf calls these rumors "full of misstatements & misapprehensions."
