I will tie up my hair and stay sober with the cries of the babies in Naju. The Pear Orchard for Tourists is a temple where I won’t feel bad for what I remember: a red bean rice cake in the pocket of a leather jacket, I walked away into the Midwestern wind, which we all do. I drink and smoke and eat. It’s the closest thing to KORAIL (KTX). “Gimjang” is the tradition of preparing winter kimchi. Enough. I don’t belong here or here or here, but I will try to love you with clenched sleeping fists.
