Then there’s the other poem inspired by Kill Your Idols. This one is “Bedlam on the Bedrock (with apologies to Stevie Nicks).” A fellow poet reacted to this as perhaps the strangest poem I’ve ever performed. It was also inspired by the movie trailer to 10,000 BC. This surreal narrative is about a wooly mammoth encountering the members of the music group Fleetwood Mac and trampling them. I loved toying around with the anachronisms. I really hope the audience enjoys the strangeness. I’ve drawn a cartoon mastodon for the program.
