Poem 4.8/5 (5)

I am from rattling toy trains
From television cartoons
And rainy dark days

I am from old rickety wall to wall homes

I am from joystick games
from flickering light bulbs
and common power loss

I am from deer hopping through the neighborhood and rolling grass fields

I am from climbing trees
and catching frogs
Vicky and Rodney

I am from fast food joints

I am from void of space and Earth’s core

I’m from zeppelins and cars

From lumbering cruise ships

From the now non existent Czechoslovakia
I am from the pages of a history torn out like an unwanted shirt
