Suji Kwock Kim

(1969 / Korean American)

Slant

If the angle of an eye is all,
the slant of hope, the slant of dreaming, according to each life,
what is the light of this city,
light of Lady Liberty, possessor of the most famous armpit in the world,
light of the lovers on Chinese soap operas, throwing BBQ'd ducks at each other
with that live-it-up-while-you're-young, Woo Me kind of love,
light of the old men sitting on crates outside geegaw shops
