I’m from nowhere, living outside the empty buzz of lonely towns
From the bouncy trampoline and the mini desert in my sandbox.
I’m from the smell of freshly fallen pine needles
The blooming pear tree teeming with life
From the dark shadows under our porch.

I’m from the dangerous, red-hot stove that burned my finger
From the lazy, soft-eyed queen of cats.
I’m from the rainbow bread during my pre-school Christmas celebration
From “Can’t, never could” and from “Amen, Brother Ben, shot a goose and killed a hen.”

I’m from Earl the joker and the delicious Lathem’s Special
From Rugrats and Scooby Doo
From when my uncle lost his life in a car crash at age 15
From the family pictures scattered in random spots around my cluttered house
From the empty feeling of knowing that Daddy’s not here.

I am from those moments
A bright green leaf tainted with holes and spots
Dangling from a small, broken tree.
I wrote this last year. We had a guide that told us how to start off some of the lines. It was a specific sort of poem or whatever.

Rugrats (c) Nickelodeon
Scooby Doo (c) Hanna Barbara

I think I got that right.
