I am from dishes
From Palmolive and blue sponges
from blanket forts in my room
(comfy, yet hard)
I am from constant yelling in my house
And loud cats outside my house
I’m from Jamaican food
And accents
From Claudette and Ryan
I’m from comedians and teasing
From “Act like you live in this house!”
I’m from church on Sundays
And bible studies on Wednesdays
I’m from America and Jamaica
Jamaican KFC and patties
In a cabinet in the living room,
graduation pictures,
Younger me
I am from these things-
Brought upon me-
The apple that doesn’t fall from the tree
