I am from.....

I am from my soft bed
from hot chili and G.I. Joes
I am from a nice house
and a big living room.
I am from a tire swing on the cottonwood tree
whose limbs, like arms, invite you in
I am from G.I. Joes and Hot Wheels
from David and Karen
and from tall, athletic and dyslexia
from fun family
I am from Christmas
from chili and tamales
from the military and the offices of Conoco
and from hard working men and women
My dad coming back from Iraq and happiness
I am from these moments.
