고독에 대한 해석 (Interpretation of Solitude)

By | 6 August 2011

The man who first invented a bow in the Old Stone Age
might have taken a close look at
a cat straightening its back at midnight.

The power of a straight line
shooting hard the fear which had penetrated the spine
toward the far-off unknown.

After the time had passed
when the cry full of lost things
as it had too many things
shot an arrow at
the cry that seemed to be full of lost things
as it had nothing,

Mr. Bushuman,
who once lived in Berlin in the 19th century,
might have observed at leisure

that a wild cat which stretched and stood up,
could open its vocal cords by the injury planted in its spine all its life.

When the wrists seized and proffered
by an abandoned person to an abandoned person
by a tender-hearted person to a tender-hearted person
were cut off, snip-snip,

still nothing in the world was not shaken like the archer,
everything all around in the world was just targets,
when it was just horrible,

he came back home,
folded, folded the bellows until the crying stopped
and so came to invent the accordion
that phonated with nothing but sighs.
