Letter to a Distant Father
The writer of the letter in Kenneth Radu’s title poem is reaching across an enormous silence: from a microchipped contemporary Canadian setting to the rest home on the Black Sea where his father is dying; and then even further, back to their lives in a peasant village before the son’s escape under the wire.
