Where I Come From

I come from a small family
Quiet holidays
Once a year visits
Distance is a dagger

I come from southern roots
Magnolia trees in the front yard
Mardi gras beads in the streets
Crawfish is the best treat

I come from uncomfortable couches
Skittish dogs
Judice Inn burgers
And reunions at the local pizza place

I come from trips to the country
For a bowl of gumbo
And a game show or two
Fire ants and lizard sightings

I come from long car rides
Back to Michigan
Holding on to memories
Of a loved ones who live so far away
