Where I am From

October 29, 2008

I am from expo marker from Vans and origami
I am from the cool little white house sitting in the corner of the street
I am from the tree that grows everyday
I’m from family going out every Monday for dinner and talent
I’m from the know-it-alls and the pass-it-ons

From don’t peek at the tooth fairy or die and don’t step on a crack, and break your mamas back
I’m from Catholic and god
I’m from Reno, Nevada and older farmers,
Corn and beans
From the Leo Samaniego how he was the best sheriff ever, and Alex Reza the best post office supervisor
Under my bed in the family picture book lay memories of everyone I know, I am from those memories that never change.
