Where I’m From

I am from Apple products

from lipgloss and false lashes

I am from the hardwood floors

and cozy blankets of my home

I am from the carnation

The oak tree

whose long limbs I remember

as if they were my own.

I am from Sunday morning service and curly hair

from Dee and Robby

I’m from family dinners and reading books

I’m from Brooklyn and Panama and Jamaica

From hard working women

and entrepreneurs

I am from hundreds of photos

in my grandmothers house

of memories good and bad

I am me
