4 Kim Un Translations by Anton Hur

By and | 15 February 2023

Selections from It All Moves.


It’s not easy to be alone. There I am, making an other.
At the drop of a pin, I create an enemy. It’s fine to love him.
What else would we talk about?

At the right distance, we can talk of danger
and beauty.

It’s not easy to get drunk alone.
There I always am, making a guest. To create anger
I can go after him. In that precise distance

I drop by this someone and grab him by the collar.
It’s not easy to find closure alone. There I am,
making misunderstanding.
