Where I am From

I am from bookcases

from styrofoam and spray paint

I am from the dollhouse frame

and tree branches

I am from the Birch tree

whose grown along side me

I am from blankets and boxes

from Dorothy and Eileen

I am from Bless You and Save You

and from Keep You From Harm

from Christmas soup

I am from Praise God from whom all blessings flow

I am from Sempeck and Frew

from Mini Mart Pizza and reuben sandwiches

from letter weddings

and from grand pianos

road trips, plane rides, and hotel rooms

I am from those moments of organized chaos
