The Where I’m From

By Eddie

I am from a car
from a blazer
and the Fast Life

I am from the basement (lonely, cold, and scary)
I am from the dead rose
the wilting flower

I am from parties
and brown eyes
from Rambo
and Chaps
and Nito

I am from the Party
and Recalentados
from geraso
and a cholo

I am from la morena
I’m from Delaware,
carne asada and pasole

From the drunk Tio,
the tipsy tia
and the sleeping primos

I am from all this and more
You just gotta get to know me
to know where I’m from.
