EXPERIENCING ASIA
(8/11/18)

we get
it

we
understand

you're a
world traveler

an adventurer

or at least
a dilettante

we're happy
for you

we really
are

just remember

that your
oh so temporary
experience

is but
a sickly shadow

as compared
to the solid
substance
of actually
living there

that's
full time
baby

stay
for a year

instead
of simply
passing
through

you would
certainly
have something
of significance
to share
by then

you would
have some weight
to your words

some perspective
in your pics

we'd definitely
make more careful
note of your posts

although
you would still
never be one
of the locals

however
you will
always have
the tattoo
to say
that you are
