ISSUE:  Spring 2016


after Ko Un


Everything outside my house
is my teacher

Master Horseshit
Master Cowshit
Master Children’s Freckles

In the middle of the road
two dogs humping

I walk the other way

A path had survived from the old days
At twilight my dead brother stood between two poplars
which also did not survive

A warship moves through the water
near Paekyong Island in the Yellow Sea
not a seagull in sight
my hands holding an empty soju bottle
the sea looking as if someone had disappeared in it
