I am from Ben Sankel

Ben Sankel

I am from soft couches
From coke can banks and fake coins
I am from gray houses
And large windows
I am from a big tree outside my window
Whose branches shade my room
I am from photos and books
From Cliff and Joel, Theresa and Gloria, and Chris and Steve, and from Howard and Susan
And from Mother’s Day breakfasts and Thanksgiving dinners
From playing tennis in sunny and rainy weather
I am from skiing rough trails
From waffles and banana pancakes
And from sailing in rough waters
From cheesy peppers and spicy chicken
From capsizing
And from sailing on boats
From playing with a toy gambling machine
I am from the moments of reading and playing basketball
