As a boy, Pedro had a stutter and loved straight lines.
When he married, he moved to the city for its
railings, striplights, roadsigns, ledges, doorways.
Pedro found he could talk smoothly after his son was born.
When Pablo was a child, he loved his father’s singing,
but when it came to shoelaces,
he hid from his father and looked at them, confused.
