“ON THIS DAY, THE FORTH OF JULY”

1010340_10151532460026009_1937618346_nI AM FROM

I am from Bruce and Elaine, Buster and Grace, Hiroshi and Chiyoko.

From the corner in Honolulu and the Arkansas relocation camps,

From ash covered Hiroshima and the sparkling riverside in Kumamoto.

I am from pineapple cannery workers, electricians, mechanics, priests, and fish peddlers browsing old Hawaiian streets.

I am from raw fish eaters, sushi makers, and women who sew your clothes while you sleep.

I am from anxiety, darkness, sexuality and love.

I am from “be happy” and “be bold” and “shut your f$%#en mouth” and “remember that you are a samurai.”
