Where I’m From – Soledad Rodriguez

I am from Tempurpedic pillows
From colored pencils
and oatmeal with cinnamon
And beans and rice
I am from the roses in the backyard
the bushes bloom all year round
I am from pine trees that always stuck me but smelled so good
I am from opening Christmas presents the night before
and an allergy to bug bites
From Ysidro and Gala
I’m from the books and roadtrips
From “Don’t hit your brother” and “Eat your food”
I’m from Boston and Mexico ,
From the embarrassing stories that only felt funny later
The things I love the most
And from the people I love the most.
