I am from the scones my mom makes on cold,

winter nights.

I am my dad’s impossible ideas that he makes real though sculpting.

I am the

old SoHo loft that I have lived in all

my life.

From the stickers on my wall, the comics on my shelf taped together because they have been around too long. The wrinkled, torn couch in my living room,

sagging toward the center as a result of

days gone bye.

I am from the guys who hang out on my block, greeting me since I was


I am the honking of cars lulling me to sleep,

as they fight to get into the tunnel.
