Where y’at?

I’m from

Coo-yon

Gris gris

Honte

Down the bayou

Making groceries

Cookin’ up a storm

Lagniappe

Yeah, you rite

Cher, bebe

Throw me somethin’, mister

Pass a good time

the Ta-tai

the Rougarou

Pinch the tail and suck the head

How’s ya mama an’ them

Laissez les bon temps rouler

and Lache pas la patate

Memoirs of an amnesiac

I am from finding humor in heartbreak
Punchlines
Poetry
Honesty
Realism
Romance

I am from fly over states
Obscurity
Patriarchy
Progressive ignorance
Undiagnosed mental illness

I am from beautiful landscapes
Gas guzzling rigs
Wildfires
Wild Child
Wild children who start forest fires

I am from faith in anything .but self
Dusty pews
Potlucks
Women who fear men
Men who fear themselves

I am from obligatory high school encounters
Mediocrity
Exclusion
Emotion
Pre- pubescence

I am from an infinite loop of history repeating itself
Self doubt
Hypocrites
Narcissists
Rural folk

I am from insolence and insignificance
The here and now
The here and then
The there and then
The here and back again: A hobbits tale by Bilbo Baggins

I am from terminal nostalgia
Abuse, then absence
Shame, then silence
Death, then distance
Grief and god

 

I am from nowhere
And that’s what I’ll tell you
