Where I, am From
I am from Teddy, the brown nosed
from the heart of my impeccable savior.
I am from the impossibly high imperial
castle that protected me from countless
encounters with “el loco”.
I am from Sunday trips to the lake and
spirit guides, from Miguel Lago and Maria
de los Angeles Cabrera and Jardon.
I am from the passionate love encrypted
into our DNA and the annoying premature
grey hairs that mark our turning into the 16th
From “estas en todas” and “Dayana por favor!
Cinco minutos de silencio”
I’m from the friendliest of places, from the
Beauty of Spain and Kagoshima, Japan,
noodles and honey chicken.
From the countless attempts to break that
terrible thumb addiction and learning how to play
checkers in grandfathers shoe factory instead.
I am from that secret hole behind the vanity mirror
where everyone’s most valued possessions lie hidden
