Flayed Throat: To Dad

‘You talk so loud.’ The father said to his son.

                                    ‘I have to.’ The son said to his father.”

                                                                                                —a poet

 

The confines: a throat, laid bare;

a hollowed-out holler.

 

Where a father might scream, “Son,”

a son might scream louder.
