I am from marzipan rabbits on home baked cakes,
Picnics of pickle in the hatchback,
Feeding apple cores to the boorish moor ponies.

I am from Optimus Prime and the Autobots,
Moonwalking across the kitchen floor,
Trash can skateboards and cobblestones.

I am from 'Clean your plate or I'll get the copper stick,'
A war-worn grandmother,
A war-torn city,
A bomb shelter full of puddles and pinafores.

I am from mummies, and mum,
From dinosaurs, honey bees, skeletons in tiny graves,
From sea gulls and sea air and seaside rock.

I am from kendall mint in castles,
Cress and cheese in ferry boats,
The only house in town with a basketball hoop.

your style reminds me of Burroughs
especially the way you capture an average setting
like a rural family image and bring out its repulsion
with a simple verse
major kudos
