Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Winner of the 2018 Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Poetry. After his boyfriend Earth's murder, CAConrad was looking for a (Soma)tic poetry ritual to overcome his depression. This new book of 18 rituals and their resulting poems contains that success, along with other political actions and exercises that testify to poetry's ability to reconnect us and help put an end to our alienation from the planet.
CA Conrad has been working with the ancient technologies of poetry and ritual since 1975.
