Where I'm From

By ,
I am from gumballs and dum-dums


From green beans and potatoes

Watermelon and honeydew
I am from the Care Bear collection in the bedroom



My brother’s Nintendo 64

And my sister’s karaoke machine
I am from the house next to Krissy and Ty

I am from the house on the big hill



With the last stop on the bus


I am from the house with the red walls and leather couch
I am from the house with the hole in the bathroom wall
I am from the country trees


And the suburban sandbox
I am from Polly Pockets and Bratz


From bicycles and roller skates



And Goosebumps
And Junie B. Jones
And Build-A-Bear Workshop
I am from bathrobes and Harry Potter


And pencils in aluminum foil

I am from bean bag chairs



And tea parties
I am from too North to be South


And too South to be North
I am from all the people in between



And the friends that turned into family
