treetrunk you in slang and conventional English.
treetrunk you in lost and neglected lingoes.
treetrunk you hungry and sated; faded, pock marked, and defaced.
treetrunk you with orange rind, fennel and anchovy paste.
treetrunk you with rosemary and thyme, and fried green olives on the side.
treetrunk you humidly and icily.
treetrunk you farsightedly and blindly.
treetrunk you nude and draped in stolen finery.

treetrunk you while cells divide wildly and birds trill.
Thank you for barring me from his bedside while he was ill.
treetrunk you puce and chartreuse.
treetrunk you postmodern and prehistoric.
treetrunk you under the influence of opiun, codeine, laudanum, and paregoric.
treetrunk every real and imagined country you fancied yourself princess of.
treetrunk you on feast days and fast days, below and above.
treetrunk you sleepless and shaking for nineteen nights running.
treetrunk you ugly and treetrunk you stunning.

treetrunk you shipwrecked on the barren island of your bed.
treetrunk you marching in lockstep in the ranks of the dead.
treetrunk you at low and high tide.
And treetrunk you astride
anyone who has the bad luck to treetrunk you, in dank hallways,
bathrooms, or kitchens.
treetrunk you in gasps and whispered benedictions.

And treetrunk these curses, however heartfelt and true,
that bind me, till I forgive you, to you.”

Otomo-no-Tabito

Better than to say things like a wise man, it seems,
is to drink sake, get drunk, and weep.

Don’t think about useless things—
You should be drinking, it seems to me,
A bowl of raw sake.

How ugly—take a good look at a man who acts wise and doesn’t drink
—just like a monkey!

Since all living things die in the end
while I’m in this world I’ll enjoy myself.

Azaleas
by Kim So-wŏl

When seeing me sickens you
and you walk out
I'll send you off without a word, no fuss.

Yongbyon's mount Yaksan's
azaleas by the armful I'll scatter in your path.

With parting steps
on those strewn flowers
treading lightly, go on, leave.

When seeing me sickens you
and you walk out
why, I'd rather die than weep one tear.

Submission
by Manhae Han Yong-Un

Others love their freedom, but I prefer submission.
It’s not that I don’t know freedom.
I just want to submit to you.
Willing submission is sweeter than exalted freedom.

Snow
by Kim Jong-hae

Snowflakes are light,
for they carry each other on their backs.
The falling snow is comforting.
Watching the snowflakes rub their cheeks
upon one another’s backs is pleasing.
As the snow falls, I wish I could carry someone with me.

The Flower
by Kim Chun-soo

Before I called her name,
she was nothing
more than a gesture.

When I called her name,
she came to me
and became a flower.

Like I called her name,
will someone please call my name
that suits my light and fragrance?
I, too, long to come to her
and become her flower.

We all long to be something.
You, to me, and I, to you,
long to become a gaze that won’t be forgotten.

In the Field Filling Up with Snow
by Seo Jeong-ju

It’s all right,
It’s all right,
It’s all right,
It’s all right–
the snowflakes fall in heaps,
embracing even the sound of baby pheasants and quails
returning to their nests.

It’s all right,
It’s all right,
It’s all right,
It’s all right–
the snowflakes fall like fluffy cotton,
embracing even the sound of young girls with rosy cheeks
returning to their nests.

It embraces even the sound of all the fortunes returning home,
the crying,
the laughing,
the burdened ones
now getting up strongly.

To the big ones, big tear traces,
to the small ones, small laugh lines;
the sound of big stories and small stories
returning home, whispering softly.

It’s all right,
It’s all right,
It’s all right,
It’s all right–
the snowflakes fall constantly,
embracing even the sound of many mountains–
the Blue Mountains returning home.
Rumi is one of my all time favorite poets...

Beyond all ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense.

Be Drunk


You have to be always drunk. That's all there is to it—it's the only way.
So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone,
ask the wind,
the wave,
the star,
the bird,
the clock,
everything that is flying,
everything that is groaning,
everything that is rolling,
everything that is singing,
everything that is speaking. . .
ask what time it is
and wind,
wave,
star,
bird,
clock will answer you: "It is time to be drunk!
So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk!
On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Jealousy

It was the way
you spoke about her.

With animosity, regret, disdain
and underneath it all,
just a hint of pride.

"...deixa a vida te embalar,
o barulho te corroer,
a bagunça te entreter,
o sonho te alcançar,
a emoção te dominar.
Deixa tudo te doer.
E vive."

“What was it like to love him? Asked Gratitude.
It was like being exhumed, I answered, and brought to life in a flash of brilliance.

What was it like to be loved in return? Asked Joy.
It was like being seen after a perpetual darkness, I replied. To be heard after a lifetime of silence.

What was it like to lose him? Asked Sorrow. There was a long pause before I responded:

It was like hearing every goodbye ever said to me—said all at once.”

“It was a question I had worn on my lips for days - like a loose thread on my favourite sweater I couldn't resist pulling - despite knowing it could all unravel around me.

"Do you love me?" I ask.

In your hesitation I found my answer.”

Love Sonnet XI
P.Neruda


I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.


I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.


I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,


and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.
