Cardiac Slaves of the Stars

(translated from the Korean by geul)

I shall return to heaven.

*

When dawn alights, hand
in hand with the vanishing dew

*

I shall return to heaven.
Together with the red glow of the sun,
just the two of us playing at the foot of the
mountain when the clouds beckon

*

I shall return to heaven.
The day the picnic ends in this lovely world,
I shall go and say
it was lovely. . . .

poem in Korean
