Where I am from...
I am from the trampoline, the U-Haul, and a country music song.
I am from the park.
I am from red dirt and mesquite trees.
I am from shoot from the hip and sarcasm, from Mom Morris and Mommer and Mama Nita.
I am from the honky tonk and Sunday school.
From the gypsies and gars in the water.
I am from Amazing Grace and wooden pews. From the One who is, and was, and is to come.
I'm from Archer,Young, and Wichita, Memaw's chocolate pie and fried potatoes.
From the twister in the rear view mirror, beer and football Sundays, deer stands and trot lines.
I am from the polaroids in the stacks of albums in my mother's closet.
