Upon Hearing of Another Marriage Breaking Up
Upon Hearing of Another Marriage Breaking Up is a poem that reads as if he had been edited with a wrecking ball. Author Dean Young reads this poem in something much less than a resounding manner--to say that his recitation was sing-songy would be a comparative compliment. And it would be a lie, at least of the sort you tell your ordinary friend with artistic manners so to not hurt or offend them. What the poet offers on this soundtrack has the flat, expressionless timbre of someone in shock, before they passed out from the loss of too much blood.
