It’s not broken
English so much as it is

Goodbye my young
Balinese friend, let us meet
in other nations

Annoyed endlessly
with others’ demands upon
my recreation

Part of growing up
is learning how to say no
with enough resolve

of foreign airlines stirring
up deep ire

Skipping haiku
sows doubt in poet’s mind and

Scuba diving–
finally a scientific
outdoor pastime
