iamfromI  am  from  Channel,

From  Sephora  and  apple.

I  am  from  the  bottom  of  the  nail  polish,

(all  colors,  smelled

Like alchohol)

I  am  from  the  rose  bush,

From  the  thick  pointy  thorns,  that  I  bleed  from

I  am  from  the  soccer  balls,

And  the  heart-sunglasses,

From  Estela  and  Daniel.

I’m  from  the  Perfect-it-alls,  and

The  pass-it-on’s,

From  “ con  la  boca  cerrada

Te  ves  mas  bonita”

I’m  from  the  Book  Of  Mormon  and

7  articles  of  faith  I  can  say  myself

I’m  from  Mexico  City

The  liver  cancer  my  grandma  got,  before  I  was  born

On  the  shelf  was  a  box  of  old  pictures  of

My  family  relatives  I  never  met.

I  am  Mexico
I  am  Mormon

I  am  Gezebel
