A collection of bombastic and ecstatic poems by Russell Edson, Rumi, Etheridge Knight, and Tim Young. A wife pours her husband into molds, a man marries his automobile, a woman’s father becomes an ox, and a poet is feeling fucked up. Performed at the 1993 Minnesota Men’s Conference by Robert Moore, Malidoma Somé, Onaje Benjamin, and Young himself.

Founded by Robert Bly in 1984, the Minnesota Men’s Conference celebrates the telling of old stories, the gifts of poetry and music, and opening our hearts to grief, wildness, and joy. We all have a yearning for lives of richness and meaning; this five-day conference is a unique opportunity to enrich ourselves in a community of other men.
