And what is most striking about these poems is the candor, vulnerability, and tenderness with which they confront the realities of loss. Travelling through landscapes of the body, the metropolis, and the open road, Hypothesis explores the narratives of science, the experiments of medicine, and the desolation of environmental collapse to find what endures. Each poem builds upon another until they create of themselves a timeless collection capped by a powerful homoerotic elegy for our moment and place.
