Overview


Poetry. The sapient roaches of our planetary future, when they seek to understand the sickening dismay, abysmal grief and goofy absurdity of the Anthropocene in Donald Trump's America, will reach for their dog-eared (or bug-horned) copies of Aaron Anstett's PLEASE STATE THE NATURE OF YOUR EMERGENCY. In these impossibly crystalline poems, Anstett has distilled from the ironic bile of our vast, unbearable tragedy the steely essence of our predicament.
