A little playing to type hyping that ugly American template. But also carries the locals a little greasy. In the main, just another poem a day in April knockoff.

Yes Padre..I Understand

Sampling the sympathies
of three continents
I was no tourist
of self pity
It’s all local to me
and if I didn’t fit in
I folded
sharply creased
to take the edge off
and play the angles
while appearing to pout
about having to part
with a few Yankee dollars
for orphans here and
there
