for amanda... but belonging to everyone

where i come from sincerity is currency
where i come from people hold hands and sway when they are moved, kind of koombaya but less self conscious
where i come from people offer cheese in words and no one thinks it's weird
where i come from i love you is spoken as often as hello but the word love is never thrown around
where i come from tears are the proper response to everything
where i come from hugs are rewarded
where i come from the truth shines
where i come from you come from
