I am from

I am from Guatemala 

From Central America to North America

From the rocks in our backyard 

Brown, sharp, bumpy and rough

I am from the dirt soft and moist

I am from angry tension in the air

From Mum and Dad

I am from the dark and light

From hand me downs to designer

I am from “ get out of bed!” To “ stop messing around.”

From roasted turkey to chocolate lava cake

I am from sea urchins

Sharp, and prickly

I’m from poems—

 pages white but flimsy

Holding me to the tips 

of human fingertips
