Dismal and utterly compelling, the poems of Gabor G. Gyukics explore not only physical death, but the decay of the heart and soul. A chronicler of the emptiness of contemporary history, Gabor hefts our inner turmoil and puts it under a microscope, teaching us everything that we should know, but wish we didn't. No matter what his subject matter, his purpose is an introspection from which we all benefit. His symbols are beautifully woven and perfectly clear, while his cadence delivers his bleak knowledge in a vivid, wonderous package.
