Kama'aina


“Are you kama’aina?”
Are you local?

I smile and shake my head
at the check stand lady
asking.

“Oh, well you look it.”

I smile even bigger inside
at the wonderful compliment she just
gave.

“You could just say you are.
No one would question it.”

Just keep it coming, girl.
I’m eating this up—

A California girl
With a haole mom and a
hapa haole dad and a
hapa Hawaiian grandfather and a
really good tan.
