Sakau Buzzed: Going Nowhere Slow

Fingerlynn is a chain-smoking, wiry mother of four.
She is timeless in the way that characters in myths and fairy tales are timeless. She laughs in a single deep hah. This gunshot laugh is often followed by a punch to my shoulder: not a good natured “ol’ chum” punch but a serious, bruising jab. She is in a tiny minority of adult Pohnpeian women whose body can be described as “athletic” (as opposed to “diabetic”). Her dark, small eyes are beautiful like a ferret’s. She is my best friend, and every night we head for the Try Me First (Eat Me Later) sakau market to argue with each other about oral sex. -- Nowhere Slow: Try Me First, Eat Me Later — The Bygone Bureau
