Bali

"Boss!" like I put them on payroll

"Yes, okay," like I had already decided to buy the thing

"Massage?" like after a tough day at the beach all I could use was some relaxation

"Transport?" as if my feet weren't carrying me fast enough to my next unknown destination

"Valium," to ease the anxiety of being mobbed by a hundred street pedlars in the span of one block

"My friend!" like we haven't seen each other in donkey's years

"Teedak, teri makasi," my answer to all of this


-Bali, Jan 12/2017
