We call Ryan Ridge’s Ox a collection of poetry, but it’s probably unlike any book of poetry you’ve read before. The poems contained within are often clever and lighthearted, but when taken in congress, something begins to emerge: a character and a life – the life of Ox, a life that must be experienced.
