where I’m from

where I’m from
note from self

white gloves and
chic hats for town
silver servers at dinner
this is where I’m from
but not who I am

now I wear blue jeans
and T-shirts with
sleek dogs by my side—
but this is not
who I am

see clear space
and open air
a flash of bird wing
and unbounded love
find me there

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—not final versions.
