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. Göransson'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.' Göransson sure as fuck does. These poems made me cry. So sad and anxious and genius and glarey bright."—Rebecca Loudon
