Another Home Poem by Sangnam Nam

Another Home

On the night when I came back home
My skeleton also came and is lying down beside me

The dark room connects to the universe
Like the sound the wind blows from the sky somewhere
Who is weeping?
me, or the skeleton or the beautiful soul of his
While looking at the withering-away-in-the-dark skeleton?

All night long the faithful dog barks
The darkness through till morning breaks

The dog that barks the darkness
Would be chasing me down

Not letting the skeleton know
Let us leave, let us
Like the fugitive let us leave
For some home another home so beautiful
by Yoon Dong-ju (1917-1944)
