Anthropocene Blues

Anne Waldman

About This Poem


"'Anthropocene Blues' is written in response to the increased evidence of human interference in planetary balance and ecological well-being. And it is also written with alarm at the continuing prevalence of climate change ignorance and the thrust of recent political events. The poem is written for the new year. The writing is on the wall."
—Anne Waldman
