WHERE I'M FROM
BY: CAMISCA FONTES


I am from the Magnolia flowers,
from red clay dirt and Mississippi waters.
I am from dirt roads and tree branch areas.
Greens leaves that sparkle in the summer.
I'm from the Magnolia flower, as if I could remember it just yesterday.

I am from fried chicken and gold jewerly,
from clothersline to old houses.
I'm from press-n-combs and hair grease, 
from blonde hair to bons-bons, 
from blackberry cobbler and homemade biscuits.
Remembering the spring and summer times of the smells from the Magnolia flowers.

I'm from Hawk and Lil Red's union
collard greens and facuet water, to hot water cornbread.
From the DUI that took my parent's to the grave site of the dirt roads.
From persecuted to not destroyed.
From going to make groceries to fresh green leaves of the Magnolia flower on 
West Pines road.
