Notes to this poem…

Please click here for the background to this haiku collection if you want to know more about it.

The name Tran mentioned is read trung. The name Bao is read bow rhyming with wow.

I written about Cousin Tran in the previous haiku, and mentioned Bao to be her boyfriend. He seemed like a pretty nice guy, without all the Vietnamese macho-ness I generally don’t like. He seems to get along very nicely with Tran, often helping out to capture photos of Tran for her Facebook profile. Tran is very pretty, fun and social media savvy like the young generation anywhere these days, you see. However, it’s hard to do it all by yourself, so how convenient is it to have a boyfriend who loves getting you those photos and videos? 🙂

Bao is in some of those pictures and videos, too, of course, but it’s mostly Tran that’s in them.

I helped while I was there to get them a selfie stick that their families deemed a luxury they didn’t want Tran and Bao to get. 🙂

I hope things will work out in the ultimate way for Tran and Bao.
