Michelle Meier’s first collection of poems, 
Famous Geranium, traverses the stuff of accidents,
peculiarities, contradictions, futilities, losses,
and dreams. Meier's precise language and
exacting attention reveal the luminous strangeness
that inhabits the most ordinary objects and
occurrences and takes us in touching distance of
the nearly-here and nearly-seen but just
out of reach. “Meier’s response to the world’s
quietest signals—this gorgeous book—feels effortless,"
writes Miranda Field. "All is magical, aglow, like a
glass of simple tap water in winter light.”
