Bradajo, one of the pioneers of local Hawai?i literature in Pidgin (Hawaiian Creole English), writes poems in an idiosyncratic and artful calligraphy. His is wisdom poetry, composed of runic strings of words: like “fo / get / dem / salf / imijes / man” or like “pooo / chooo / mai / neen / nooo / chrol”.
