Answer by Mark DuCharme
|Answer||Mark DuCharme||BlazeVOX [books]|
"Excuse me, what was the question," Mark DuCharme asks coyly in this in this, his fourth collection. Yet don’t expect any easy answers, because these edgy lyrics aren’t about to give them. Instead, the book presents a “reflecting, sexy discourse,” a poetics of often intimate response, an entanglement with the phenomenal world which insists always on the pleasure of reading as a value in its own right.
Enter a shimmering, wavering, vacillating, crinkly reality, the mysterious acrobatic disjointing of what you thought you knew. Enter Mark DuCharme’s Answer, where the self-evident succumbs to the agnostic as a wizardly lyric unpins certainty. Brilliantly unpredictable, these poems divine by assemblage of a familiar quotidian and set us wondering.
