Kyungdae Min (August 23,1951 / Hae Nam, Korea)
Ear of A Tree
I met a friend who goes
To an insurance school in New York,
His poem appears in a Korean newspaper.
My friend came to realize the Am, , erican
His insurance company job, leaving
His wife and two children behind.
He majored in philosophy,
Still he works until daybreak
Living in a rented apartment of
Subletiing his apartment
(On riverside Drive he shares)
A rented apartment.
He is a gardner who cultivates young
Branches to sprout wings.
