A debt of gratitude is owed to the forty-five poets who contributed their wonderful words to help make this project possible. Each of their unique voices acts as a lighthouse of inspiration during this critical moment in history that will define what the future of civilization looks like. Just as a muscle must first be broken down before it can grow back in a stronger condition, so too must we pass through this modern crisis of chaos before we emerge in a state of higher order. I believe the spirit of humanity remains resolute and that renaissance is waiting in the wings.

We all know the score in the Age of Wuhan. What is there left to say? A world consciousness seized by fear is as virulent as the plague itself. Fortunately, the best salve for troubled times is beautiful art. Luckily, we have discovered a wellspring. Dose up. Drink deep. Sigh pure.
