16. Aloha Big Kahuna

16. Aloha Big Kahuna

couch surfing as necessity 
is ‘gnarly’ and ‘extreme’ 
‘hang ten’ is difficult 
‘hang twenty’ is supreme

not being the ‘grubbing’ 
‘sponger’ ‘dude’ & ‘dudette’
means the odd ‘mush’ or ‘keg’ 
taken out of ‘pocket’

no playing with the ‘woody’ 
or getting the ‘buoy’ ‘naked’ 
no room to deal with ‘swells’ 
can’t even fit the ‘snake’ in

there is only one ‘priority’ 
on someone else’s turf 
get your own ‘360’ ‘board’ 
your own ‘rad’ place to ‘surf’
