My Father’s Gloves touches on that most conflicted of family bonds, the one between fathers and sons. With a hauntingly painful voice, Spiering explores the burdensome yoke of a father’s expectations and the struggles a son must face as he grows into manhood. His poems are accessible and wrought with emotions, his descriptions subtle in their complexity, and his pace slow yet deliberate.
