.

I am from Acer, from Bounty and Logitech.

I am from the jungle gym in the park a few streets away.

I am from Chinese restaurants, halal food stands, and the subway.

from Hey! and Shush!

from jokesters, and hand me downs,

rice and noodles and chicken and duck.

I’m from Buddhism 

and crystals for good luck.

I am from my dad and mom,

From my parents working at my age, telling me how I should work harder.

On my computer is a box showing old photos of

people I don’t see anymore,

Like my past showing me the good times again.

I am from running up a mountain

to achieve goals and expectations.
