Matthew Hotham

Our Fathers
by Matthew Hotham

John, your father has a glass eye—
when it rolls on the floor you clean it.

Some days he forgets English, rambles
about his dead brothers in French.

There are medical bills and he bites
the nurses who bring his lunch—
in October, they will ask him to leave.

You look at me with pity
when we compare fathers,
but John, my burden in light.

There is a tree an hour north
of Skowhegan
and my father is under it.

I carry him like a prayer in my throat—
he is mostly air and memory.

When I knew he wouldn't come back,
I withheld memory—
turned my father into breath.

— from Meridian:24 pp 64

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
