“Where I’m From” by Joey Tan

Where I’m From

I am from a happy place,
with songs, foods and gifts.
People are singing, drinking and laughing.
There are beautiful lamps on the top for lighting people who want to have fun.
Where I’m from the rice is the main menu,
the foods are all tasty.
I am from New York, Manhattan, Little Italy for now
from old wood stairs to the fourth floor.
I am also from GuangZhou, PanYu, QIFU,
from rock stairs to the sixth floor.
Where I’m from
has a big TV, big bed, and a medium size desk.
The reading light is the best
with yellow color to make the room warm, pleasant and sweet.
Who else is in the room?
My dear mother.
