Orbiting Iapetus

Change suffuses life
its pattern of beginning and end, like opposites in balance
bereft or beginning continuous movement within infinity
two as me and four across the sky
clean and white
geon gam gon ri

Asian tigress
she walks alone a million miles away and too close to her I dance
the claws of Jeju island wait hungry for me
miracle on the han - rivers and mountains
embroidered on silk
a new year, a new me

Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur
Mother told me I'd be just like you
Hwang Woo-suk and Mommy out surfing came home from school
Eating with narrow metal chopsticks
We make a Library of the Human Seoul
