Root Fetish

man beats his son over the head for years with
“the niggers this” & “the niggers that.”
same way his father beat him in the head.

tells his son how stiff he gets on those nights
he dreams of having his way with one.

& so singed lust finds life inside the boy
who comes to be aroused by a similar fetish;
fear & obsession with the root
whose enduring obscurity
drives many men mad.
