Poetry. It's as though his poetry takes us to the forest in Lars von Trier's Anti-Christ, where it's filmed, but then suddenly we find ourselves standing in front of a vanished movie theatre of our home. G ransson's poetry is a film that Death peeks at, the scene of shooting the film, the film shot on a roll of film, the movie theatre, the Arcadia. A single poem is the world's interior and exterior, it convulses wildly like an animal that has eaten the poem's interior and exterior all together with silver. bang bang.--Kim Hyesoon

'I make a language out of the bleed-through.' G ransson sure as fuck does. These poems made me cry. So sad and anxious and genius and glarey bright.--Rebecca Loudon.
