“Where I’m From” (Poem)

i am from hardknocks,

from hard places and familiar faces.

i am from one place and another.

white, blue, grey, and now green,

the smell of emptiness often seen.

i am from a simple tree,

a simple tree that i once remembered.

i am from the gravy and the dead turkey on my glass plate,

from the First Of Me, and Her.

i am from rumblings within rat walls,

from “This is you” and “This is not!”

i am from here and above.

from Prometheus and whatever else that reminds me of.

i am from hills and slopes,

where meals are from the core.

from a place where i am not anymore.
