Drunk Metaphysics after Ko Un By Suji Kwock Kim

June 08, 2003|Suji Kwock Kim

I've never been one soul.

Sixty trillion cells stagger

zigzag down the street,

laughing, trash-talking, quarreling,

singing-crying, living-dying.

Sixty trillion cells -- all drunk!

From "Notes From the Divided Country"
