Where I am From

I am from pots and pans,

From Yamaha and Brass.
I am from the Farm House.
I am from fresh cut grass, the maple tree

I am from the Christmas parties and tallness,
I am from Georgina and Edward and Davidek and Williams.
I am from the stubborn and humble.

From be what you want to be and Jesus
I am from Catholicism

I am from Michigan and Czechoslovakia,
Curry chicken and spaghetti.
From my dad’s childhood boat, and the weekends on the water,
And the family craftsmanship.

I am from my Grandma’s childhood home.
Where we spend our weekends
In northern Michigan
Where fun is like air.
