.desertion.
Contributor

my father told me that he was too deaf for the war

so stayed in britain instead

of fighting

 

my father said he did not understand my mother’s illness

no one told him beforehand

the incidents

 

said that the doctor advised his leaving; the desertion

he said that he was there at my brother’s funeral;

stood back

where no one saw him, no one heard him

 

my father said he was always around if we had needed him,

so i said where?

 

but he did not hear me
