I am from a medium-sized pink duplex.
Squeaking doors, wide dirt driveway, two trucks and a large, pine tree.

I am from family.
Green and brown eyes like emeralds and crisp bark on the trees.
Light freckled skin, wavy hair,
Dirty mechanics, and First Nations.
From the sweet, loving side of my family and also the chaos-causing cousins.
I am also from annoying brothers who don’t act their age And psychotic pets that scratch, bite, and cry.

I am from the ordinary smell of my kitchen.
Buttery, popped popcorn,
The smell of fresh, spiced soup, baked, salted chicken,
Sweet, baked treat.

I am from countless celebrations and parties.
I am from crying and joy.
From birthdays, anniversaries, and potlatches
Having to suffer through pain,
Sadness, and anger.

I am from a medium-sized pink duplex.
Squeaking doors, wide dirt driveway, two trucks and a large, pine tree.
