Where I'm From Complete

I am from trashcans 
from Pepsi and Cola
I am from the ceiling looking down
(brightly, breezy 
sending my wave of love)
I am from the rose 
the daisy
Beautifully sizzled inside and out
Popped from the ground

I’m from weekend Weenie roasts and
from Lois and Albert
I’m from the stuck up
and the struck down
from you’re loud as rice
and I told you a thousand times!
I’m from hallelujah 
that gives people peace in a song

I’m from KF&F 
puppy chow and cherry crisp
From the squishy potatoes my grandpa Graydon hit with his car
the scent on my aunt who didn't ever try
The closet hangs every memory 
Dropping the regrets
Piling the sadness upon the floor
Folding all that I adore
