Baby is an anachronistic address, an intentional culling of holy space, from a father to a son. These poems ask forgiveness, evince an extreme reverence to loss, and finally, open space for mutual counsel. Watters speaks from the power of intentional exchange, for what cannot be said in passing moments. A homily to heal the often culturally unspoken frustrations and enigmas between parent and child; a map of patrilineal mercy, from father to son, through grief and gratitude—Before they became / Scared starlings, / My hands were a pack of wolves. / There is only so much / Screaming I can take / Before I almost become my father.
