Dennis Daly Reviews Hypothetically Speaking

Poems of wrath and dire suppositions dare us to awaken and live darkly in Hypothetically Speaking, M.K. Sukach’s new collection of fractured visions. This poet knows how to destroy with graven logic and malefic lyric. Never close enough for out- -and-out rage, Sukach sets up his alternate universes with a dastardly sharp and shifting wit, enticing us down some pretty idiosyncratic narrative paths.Dennis Daly

In Hypothetically Speaking, MK Sukach explores those intersections where language and culture, history and the present unsettled moment meet and are realigned. Sukach thoroughly respects his medium-our language-its chameleon abilities, its subtleties and argot, its way of being both self-conscious and self-forgetful. Thus these brilliant and ever-shifting poems, in turn apocalyptic, tender, ironic, surreal, mythic and deeply, darkly funny. With razor-sharp wit, Sukach cuts through our public delusions. His voice is at once deliciously playful and as he says in one poem, “pleasantly inconsolable.” This is savvy, surprising, spot-on, and crucial writing. ”    – Betsy Sholl

Poems in Hypothetically Speaking deal with anxiety, fear, suffering, revenge, deceit, and self-loathing. Sukach tips the scales off of this chaos and confusion with the edifice of philosophy. The result is a wonderfully if ironically jeweled collage of stoic poetic nuggets both rich and meaningful. Hypothetically Speaking is both a fun and thoughtful read certain to entertain.Encircle Publications
