This anthology includes 73 poems by 73 poets, written over the 73 days between President Donald Trump's election and inauguration. It remains as relevant in today as it was during the transition.

The collection as a whole is a kagezen, or shadow-feast, a traditional Japanese meal offered to the dead.
