“I am from my Mother’s womb”

Kurtis Thompson


I am from my Mother’s womb

Right now I have an umbilical hernia


I am from Union 36 Elementary School

My stepfather’s cousin burnt it down   

when I was in fourth grade


I am from my grandparent’s farm

They are both gone and, we, as a family,

sold all the memories


I am from my Dad,

but I only saw him on my sister’s birthdays

and Christmas


I am from Elsewhere,

and that could explain a few things
