Three times in Phuket I lost things
and they were returned by strangers.
Lens-hood lost at Promthep Gap
during naval commemoration, returned
by Thai man wearing black-gold epaulettes.
Reading glasses lost at Wat Chalong
during noontime prayers, returned
by Thai youth wearing Brooklyn t-shirt.
Hat, lost at Port Phuket
just prior to boarding, returned
by Thai tour guide, her name was Lucky.
I was three times lucky in one day,
Thank you means khob khun kha, Phuket.
