"You seek to know pain you only fathom because we told you it was there/ you know nothing of silence, until someone who does not know your pain tells you how to fix it." The powerful, jarring, overlapping delivery of "Lost Voices" makes this poem, in which Darius Simpson and Scout Bostley tell one another's stories, a pointed commentary on the politics of solidarity.
