“As boys without bonds to their fathers grow older and more desperate about their masculinity, they are in danger of forming gangs in which they strut their masculinity for one another, often overdo it, and sometimes turn to displays of fierce, macho bravado and even violence.”

When all the fireworks blare, begins
A tom-tom scrimmage with a somewhere violin,
Some cheapest echo of them allbegins.”
