Dorian Geisler's beguiling debut collection of poetry solves the problems of audacity―with audacity. A darkly uncanny romp through the lives of others, Geisler's fast-moving poetry and understated/maximalist aesthetic manage to convey a burgeoning world filled with strangers whose identities are playfully―sometimes diabolically―half-revealed.

Flowers of Anti-Martyrdomis Kafka mixed with Tarantino; it'sInvisible Cities―except instead of beautiful, imaginary cities, the poet introduces us to disconcertingly realistic humans in all their outlandish, casual perversity, exalted banality, and moral questionability.

WithFlowers, Geisler has written a collection that's open to as many readings as there are readers―and yet that's always a genuine, unambiguous delight.
