All at once, a man finds he’s packed a Subaru wagon for college, and, as his eager son pulls out the drive, he realizes most of his parenting has been done in an anxious hush. Each of the poems in Whoever Said Love stops at a quiet way station in a two-decade journey of father-and-sonhood. The collection is an offering of time and space for the words one father (maybe every father) hopes for his son to hear.
