    Where I'm From
    by George Ella Lyon
    in United States of Poetry, a book and a video published by Harry N. Abrams
    "Where I'm From"
    I am from clothespins,
    from Clorox and carbon-tetrachloride.
    I am from the dirt under the back porch.
    (Black, glistening
    it tasted like beets.)
    I am from the forsythia bush,
    the Dutch elm
    whose long gone limbs I remember
    as if they were my own.
    I am from fudge and eyeglasses,
    from Imogene and Alafair.
    I'm from the know-it-alls
    poety stinks
    and the pass-it-ons,
    from perk up and pipe down.

    After the students read the poem out loud together, we note that Lyon begins many of her lines with the phrase, "I am from." I remind the class of William Stafford's advice to find a hook to "link the poem forward" through some kind of device like a repeating line, so the poem can develop a momentum. I suggest they might want to use the line "I am from" or create another phrase that will move the poem.

    about her past. Afterpast.After we read,
    Items found around their home: bobby pins or stacks of newspapers, grandma's teeth, discount coupons for a Mercedes. (They don't have to tell the truth.)
    Items found in their yard: broken rakes, dog bones, hoses coiled like green snakes (I encourage them to think of comparisons as they list.)
