Welcome April with this new poem that captures much in its lines.

I Am From

Detrich Hay

I am from solitude,

From Nintendo and genesis.

I am from the west coast and the deep south

From the beach and green lands beyond.

I am from the diamond the first time I felt needed.

I am from a house of 8 crazy kids almost burning it down.

I’m from the smell of cigar smoke coming from the front

Porch. Im from fried chicken and Christmas tamales.
