forensic tarantellas / Mark Young

The blonde woman spent
her years of pilgrimage
watching security tapes gene-
rated by a patriarchal system 
of  law  enforcement that
lacked ethics & accountability.
Now she runs an interactive
dance workshop. Some of the

movements are taken from
the interrogation of prisoners
she saw there. Others she
found as random words in
Petrarch’s sonnets. Who keeps
following me? she wonders.

Mark Young’s most recent books are The Toast, from Luna Bisonte Prods, & The Sasquatch Walks Among Us, from sandy press.A selected poems, Songs to Come for the Salamander, is due out in August.
