Here is an excerpt from “Where I’m From” by Jack G
Where I’m From
I am from baby powder, Amens and Johnson and Johnson.
I am from the back of the house the vast areas to play and run,
large trees that make it smell like a Deciduous forest.
I am from the coconut trees that were cut down,
The Hibiscus bush that makes the air smell like perfume.
I am from Christmas lunch and Easter breakfast,
From Raymond, Stacy and Gatcliffe.
and come in for dinner.
