I’m from Disney Channel
From Reese's and Sunny D
I am from the wooden front porch
(Sunny, loud,
it smelled like Sunday brunch)
I am from the Irises
the homegrown tomato plants
that were used for salads


I’m from family dinners and loud voices
from Maw-Maw, Paw-Paw and Aunt Kim
I’m from the Christmas Eve parties
and making homemade reindeer food
From Eat your veggies 
and Always treat people how you want to be treated

I’m from the Sunday Mass

at 10:00 sharp 


I’m from the small town in California
Caesar salad and gooey cookies
From the famous story that Paw-Paw told every family dinner
starting with “when I was a kid”
The laughter of everyone when a joke was made


Along the walls family pictures
lined up in a row
I am from the loving, huge family
with cousins as close as brothers and sisters
From every family dinner story that connects us all
