Your Fathers, Where Are They? And The Prophets, Do They Live Forever?
David Eggers


Envious of your metabolism
the scar above your lip
all the numbers in your contact list
Envious of your eyelids
expansive as sky
your bellybutton
the bites you take of your cheese pizza
eaten like tea sandwiches
crusts cut off
Kari
my oldest sister
Oldest of us all
paints our nails when our parents go away
Grandma is staying with us for the weekend
We eat Wonder bread and stuff our mothers bras with
our fathers socks
