Too much confidence that I understood what was going on and not enough looking at what was actually said. Sorry bout that! How sorbet,
I'm not sure 'pini' means "close" in just that sense. 'Jo (luka)' "clutch, grasp" seems clearer
Yes, Dudley does make a difference, but 'lukin e' would have helped even more.
Nothing excuses the next bit, but "find" is 'Kama lukin', the hoped-for upshot of alasa.
