Where I'm From

I am from learning to ride a bike in my house,
        from the arms of Michael Jordan,
        from toy photoshoots,
        from Lincoln Ave.
I am from shedding bark trees,
        from a yellow room,
        from side walk chalk study guides,
        from Hood Ave.
I am from Delton,
        from candy dishes and ice cream sandwiches
        from caged birds chirping,
        from bright blue eyes.
I am from the deepest heart,
        from the most drive,
        from everywhere.
