12 Point of Origin

12      Point of Origin

 

Adopted finding new brothers and sisters

DNA speaks of Sicily and ancestors who

Ventured across the sea to a place called

Brooklyn with collections of their folk

 

Beautiful men and one being a father

Who I will never meet or see his

Good-looking glance that belongs to me and

My children in places around the eyes

 

I will never hear his voice though

I imagine my new brother sounds

Similar to that man who held my mother

Once upon a time near Brooklyn

 

There is no story to tell or know

How this comely young girl found herself

A handsome soldier beyond Italy’s shores

Long enough to make me
