ode to average suburban kids

PROMPT: Where I'm From

I am from the nowhere special;
I am from a homemade apple-dip
sugar-rushed childhood
I am from a cookie-scented
elbow-greased kitchen
and did you know
that some weeds grow
on burnt scrambled eggs
and bug-bitten legs

I am from the same places as anyone else:
from heatstroke to frostbite within two months
