Where I'm From
I am from baseball diamonds
and black tar streets.
I am from the Beatles, mainly George
and Wille Mayes, hittiong home runs.
I am from the toy soliders
who lay silent and peaceful in a
bag, as if waiting for duty.
I am from Barbies on the runway
and collecting treasures of the past and present
from Sugar Daddies and Jawbreakers.
I am from Bewitched and Banaza
and the classics of many styles.
I am from Toy Guns blasting like
from Betty and Irene.
In scrapbooks and boxes, in an
aray of places are
artifacts of my past.
I am created from these memories
etched into each item
is an element of Earth
planting new soil and nutrients
for their plant.
