Dear Lettera 32

ByCat Chong

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“is this a poem that I’m writing for you?” Dear Lettera 32 is a text that revels in contradictions, and in doing so gives the lie to our comfortable assumptions about the act of writing in and of itself. Refusing to capitulate to the reassurances of singular address, Cat Chong draws from the world around them to create a kaleidoscope of hope and longing, divinity and corruption, esoterica and hypermodernity. Confessional, lyrical, yet densely packed with theory, Chong uses an encounter with a typewriter as the inspiration for a migration across the possibilities of poetry. The resulting work is a deeply readable yet visually jarring text that evades easy categorisation. Is this an epistolary novel? A diary? A poem? Chong inhabits multiple spaces while rejecting the easy categorisation that any of them might offer, instead opening up their work to the creative possibility of discomfort.
