Son

 

Son /sʌn/n .1 [ of certain origin ] who inherits

an occupation or quality

2. who man-hauls the open air/accepts

scientific groupings: range maps

ice joints/who opens the long

hours of darkness with a shadow

scale: then fusses over the

evaporation of fuel/who discovers

the hut’s talent for gibson quilting

to the shame of his own crude

stitches/who paints weddell seals

so is never free of blubber/

who with every footstep beyond

the ross ice shelf

slow releases his father/and

raises his voice/ to the

same pony
