Abstract

Five Po e ms b y Jang Jung Il Translated by Tae Yang Kwak Hiding in a n Un derpas s Like an air raid, there's a sudden downpour of the sky's blood As if it were a Civil Defense drill, pedestrians without umbrellas Scramble about seeking shelter to wait out the rain Without time to consider and find a proper place I descend into a nearby underpass to escape the rain for a few minutes Starting from the steps, rolling mood music covers the underpass Safe from the rain, this underpass seems impenetrable Even if a million megaton neutron bomb hits If again there's forty days and nights of flood, this underpass will stand unscathed I idly walk the underpass from end to end This would be a pretty nice stroll if I had like a black dog on a leash. As I steal furtive glances at the shop windows, young saleswomen say "Please come in!" and "Are you looking for something?" Offering every type of clothing and product, as well as restaurants and bathrooms, this is a nearly perfect underpass So I entertain a daydream. I meet a woman here 253 We fall in love, have
