Poems for Time Travelers in Love by Robert Anbian
“Avant la peste, le monde est beau” (“Before the plague, the world is beautiful”) reads the book’s epigraph — a phrase originally referencing the AIDS epidemic but one tragically suited to a time of ongoing existential perils. Yet the world remains beautiful in this collection, reminding us why we endure, struggle, remember, hope.
“Mere words can’t begin to describe how whacked-out yet utterly brilliant Robert Anbian’s poetry is.” —RKF, The One True Dead Angel Magazine
“His poetry crackles with currency — hiply linguistic turns of natural originality, rhythmically brimming with a tempestuous taste of ecstasy, reason, and love.” —Richard Hack, Oxygen
