Poem: Song Sang Sung

Song Sang Sung

Korean names come

Koreans have soul

Especially South Koreans

Born in Seoul

especially in wartime

Woes and love

Sacrifice and anonymity

Humble modest

underneath bold.

It gets so fucking cold

and they survive

in threadbare rags

frozen, revived, survived

everlasting torture and further denial

Outrageously blooming

like fresh cut winter flowers.
