I am from curry powder and hot peppers and dutch pots,
From mangos and coconuts

I am from the closet we used to play hide and seek in

I am from the sprinklers
Lincoln Terrace park
Whose large landscape I remember

I'm from curry chicken and soca music

From Keith and Sorria

From Where’s your manners, child?

I’m from the holy water and oil and the Cross

I am from Dennery and Castries
Blue coral and Bay Walk

From the uncle that I never knew because he passed

I am from the glass jewelry box
Filled with old pictures
From weddings, and births

I am from laughter and dance
From work your problems out
And its all about love.
