Racism, xenophobia, misogyny and their related malaises are to the U.S. what 
whiskey is to an alcoholic. The current occupant of the White House won the 
election yipping, against possible recovery, Drinks are on me! The rich, 
multitudinous voices in this anthology variously call forhaving embarked onthe 
hard work of sobriety, sanity.

we cant build a wall. we can only spout pure water again and again and drown 
his lies.

Poets are summoned to a stronger imagination of language and humanity in a time 
of new and radical Weathers. White House Inc. is the last gasp of the dying 
Confederacy, but its spectacle is dangerous and addictive so hold onto your 
mind. Fascism loves distraction. Keep the world safe for poetry. Open the book 
of love and resistance. Don't tarry!

  Anne Waldman, recipient of PEN Center Literary Award in Poetry, Guggenheim 
Fellowship, and American Book Award, Lifetime Achievement Award
