I Am From Poem

Where I’m From

I am from TV. From the stuffed dog in my bed and the light shining in my face.

I am from a red house that has wheels.

I am from the smell of incense.

I am from gelato and eggs to eat.

I am from the crackling of Christmas presents.

I am from “Slim on it!” and “Get a move on it!”

I am from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Harry Potter. From Mom pushing me in the carriage.

I am from Boscawen, born in Concord.

I am from going to church, keeping memories in my head, and keeping track of the days.
