Abstract

FAMILY REUNION/ What you haven't said for forty years comes back at you aU at once: long distance, static-free but clinging nonetheless. Distant voices tied to your soul with cords of blood from aU the days you Uved out in seamless chUdhood, hourless, but moment by moment, a boy-child irreversibly growing toward time. What you've never said, so many occasions after rune when the rates were down, passing without response--postcards, a dime simple terms of endearment that became forbidden words impossible to utter even m soUtude--passes over tonight. Together now we have what we've Uved and what we Uve now. Two Uves, additional families. I keep as private mantra the required words of commitment, the speech of endearment: formula, language of the speU--the censored us under the stars vocabulary bringing us together, holding as no bonds other than our being here could keep us, bound, knowing beyond what we can each say, even though we say it. Even though we don't. 40 · The Missouri Review AKT /Daniel Holpern In the cinéma vérité of the sixties the beautiful protagonists always came so close, so close to the everlasting sunset they were so desperately scripted to ride into.
