poems for my FBI agent by Charlotte Geater
‘The poems in Charlotte Geater’s new book investigate the comical and terrifying consequences of constantly having to imagine the terms of our lived reality.
They follow a vertiginous logic to reassert the dark, personal utterance as a possible escape from places where we are always seen.’ Sam Riviere
Charlotte Geater’s poems for my FBI agent takes us down a Lynchian rabbit hole, a sad and shadowy agent following the poet’s every move. This book’s true surrealism lies in the fidelity with which it depicts how we now live—in a world where we are each the warm applause at the end of our own nightly show, and the rabid dogs ever-ready to devour one of our own.
