Wreckage of the Shadow / Mark Young

Renaissance is alive &
thriving this year. No-
thing else to touch it for
style or energy. Disassembled
birds — hallucinatory, peri-

lous as a minefield — set
faces to grimace, then set
out to create epic doom
metal albums from flat
unpolished non-metal

surfaces that carry no
images of the world
around yet still reflect
the importance of set-
ting up a mise-en-scène.

Mark Young’s most recent book is Songs to Come for the Salamander, Poems 2013-2021, selected & introduced by Thomas Fink, co-published by Meritage Press & Sandy Press.
