“It breaks the stereotype that poetry anthologies should be poetic, elegant, or less real than real life. Poetry is crystallized from words and is the seed of imagination; there should not be any limitation to the present. The poet [behind the anthology], Huang An-Tsu, once said ‘poetry is life,’ hoping to bring out the musicality of the poetry anthology and in doing so bring a random and unlimited style of work to his audience.”
