In many respects, people look to science to explain their world. But while science has proven itself a useful metaphor, it has just as often been exposed as being as fallible as the ?awed humans who lean on it. Newcomer Leigh Kotsilidis's lively, thoughtful and refreshingly speculative ?rst collection engages and questions the linguistic roots of 'the hypothetical,' both as they apply to the scienti?c method and its faith in certainty, and to the word's alternate meaning, as something that is merely 'supposed to be true,' and often, over time, is proved false. Under the poet's wide-angled, open-hearted, open-minded gaze, scienti?c method slowly begins to mirror the dark art of poetry, reinforcing what we believe about ourselves and the world one minute, then abruptly throwing everything into question.
