I am from buttermilk
by Brandon Johnson


 

I am from buttermilk pancakes to cocoa puffs

I am game champion to ferret feeder
I am a brother to a kid
who just loves to play

I am from the Harbor to Gonic
I am the child who dares not mess with spiders
I am the child of creativity, but down on art

I am a child of curiosity
whose interest lies in animals
I am the child who couldn't climb trees

I am the child who wrote this poem
in which you have to see
what I am is who I am
