Of where will you speak, knowing?

What does it mean to belong to a place?

A breath of you

from you lifts me up as on a cloud. I try to get up from days of depression low low self-esteem, I want to yawn the day away... I couldn't care less about the world, then you speak to me

A British Spy

M entered the room. Gabriel was smoking a cigarette on the couch. M sat down across from him: "So you wish to be a British Spy?" "Of course. Is that a problem?"

A British Spy 2

Gabriel was driving very fast, ultra fast on the highway. He felt at home with the music of Mozart's 40th played by Michiko Uchida. His eyes turned cold and emotionless as he sped faster.

A British Spy 3

"Blink once if you know someone is a spy," Francis asserted. "Yes," Gabriel answered. "Where are we?" asked Gabriel. "Montana." "When was I flown to Montana?" "While you were sleeping."

A British Spy 4

"Henry Lee." "It could very well be a Chinese name. Are you sure you are not Chinese?" "No Pure Korean-American," Gabriel answered.

A British Spy 5

Gabriel logged onto the "Visitors.Com" website. He pressed the "chat" button. Guest: Henry Lee. "How have you been?" "Good. *blink* "

A British Spy 6

Gabriel inserted a thin needle into the center of the wine-cork until the needle let out on the other side of the cork. In the middle of the poisonous vial, there was a sticker he needed to remove.

A Korean-American Princess

I don't really understand it and I really don't know if there is anything to understand. Am I obsessed?

A Korean-American Princess 2

I want to say something to her. I want to tell her she's beautiful. I want to tell her that I want her?

He didn't know when he suspected it. It was a creeping feeling, something that was gnawing at him day and night. He just didn't know when it had begun...

A Storm

Jason Lee sped through the highway into his girlfriend's living room. Hi Hi She was smoking cooly on the living room couch. She did not bother to get up. Instead, Jason sat next to her.

A Storm 2

Jason Kim and Jessica Kwon are driving to a party in his car. So who was she? No one. Did you fuck her? As she asks this, she buries her face in her hands. You did, didn't you?

A Usual Suspect

"What the fuck do you want from me?" Gabriel asked. "Who are you working for?" "For myself, you fucking moron." The man taped his mouth.

A Usual Suspect II

Gabriel didn't want to do this. He hated this. He had to literally destroy himself to become a Mu-Dang, a shaman. He had to forget who he was...

A visitor

He sat in his office, exhausted. He was not quite sure that he was a writer. His novels... they lacked depth. He wanted to express so much. "Knock, knock." "Who is it?"

Again we meet without quite knowing the right words which express, which connect the things we might have felt through young, shapeless shells. We were in the lap of something so simple,

After Years

I don't know what has happened to me. I no longer belong to any society. Those whom I saw as my friends have left me or I have left them.

I was also suicidal. I think that this was the first time in my life I seriously considered suicide. I really did not want to live.

Afternoon at the Lagrande Jatte

Those faces and bodies at the park, colored dots juxtaposed with fancy, souls intermixed with pain and stillness, arrive, the beach is humming with mellifluous sounds, never heard before

Afternoon of a Faun

An Immortal

"So I'm an immortal," asked Jason Lambert. "Yes, you are," responded the doctor. "I won't die if I get hit by a bullet." "No." "How about a nuclear explosion?"

An Immortal 2

Jason sat quietly in his seat during the meeting. He did not have anything particular to say. "Neuroscience will be our gate to new, marketable products," someone asserted.

An Immortal 3

"You're early," Mark remarked. "Yes, and you're still in bed." "I'm trying to recover from a bout of depression."

An Immortal 4

"Because of Francis' excellent critique of our "primitive" internet sex device, we have decided to create something altogether new," the executive committee leader stated, "Here it is!"

An Immortal 6

The Egg slowly opened. Francis and Jason stepped out. "It's a wonderful success," Francis beamed with a smile. Then, she squeezed Jason's hand. Jason looked at her for a slight second.

An Immortal 7

"IP (Immortality Project) has not existed for 10 years," Jason responded. "You are mistaken. It has. I am the daughter of Frankel Mitt, the person who started IP," Francis said.

An Immortal 8

"You tore their limbs apart?" Jason asked curiously with an evil smile.

"My father thought impotence would solve the sexual violent streaks; however, it did not. Instead of the sexual violent streak, the person became comatose for one day."

Not since the films of Ingmar Bergman have I seen such nakedness, such naked, glamourless acting displayed on the screen.

One time in my life, when I was about 18 or 19, I myself became very attracted to Japanese Fascism.

Deconstructing Context

One word that continually pops up in Postmodern discourse is "context." Now Postmodernists are quick to point out that context is temporal, finite, and not all that meaningful.

Deconstructing Context 3

A more curious and wonderful deconstruction of context has resulted in the foregoing of all groups. After all, if you keep on deconstructing context, then the final context is the individual.

Deconstructing Context 4

Without limits, one cannot define oneself. The individual becomes a continuum without limits. And being a continuum is a terrible thing that destroys the most creative, genius types.

Deconstructing Context 5

Now, in this Nabokovian Universe, almost everything seems to be permissible. At the same time, not everyone is teeming with personality and character as in Nabokov's novels.

Deconstructing Context 6

Now, you are ask why society is being fragmented on ideological and racial grounds. It is very simple. There is really no unified theory of the Universe.

Now, there is nothing wrong with putting things in their context. After all, we are not God. But Postmodernism

The hermeneutics of suspicion is basically a theory of suspicion.

A conflicted soul so much in need sometimes i really detest myself evil as i am other times I see myself as very very good almost angelic, a dance of souls the dance of rivers out to sea.

Pleroma

is a shower of stars petal after petal flowoverly flowering through the logos spermatikos spreading through one's body, filling it with joyous spirituality

Let your soul wash

your memories away RUN after all that has been imprinted on your SOUL, it's endless bliss afterfoamin' shower after shower of beings, lost or gone into the night THE SIGHT if fore'er after

Trisha at Gabriel's Place

[Crime and Punishment][The Brothers Karamazov][The Collected Works of Kim Il Sung][Without Feathers][The Collected Works of Rilke][To Know a Woman]:

Twin Desires

The world's no longer a veil of tears as joys uncoil from inane phrases and the heart opes its chambers through arteries of sounds it's never admitted before. Skies

Trying to Improve

Why do I enter the same patterns again AS IF these patterns defined myself? I was so lazy, sleeping to wave after wave off my problems, feeling a horrible weight (a stone, a rock, a problem)

Into Silence

my face dropped like water, lost (no longer possessing any characteristic of eyes, nose, lips: alone) not knowing, dressed in shame i could not say, no words like bubbles

I cannot say

when you are so full... your footsteps, fragments of sparkling nets throwing themselves on dark slippery, rippling echoes, i cannot say what is so ephermeral about you forever breaking into

So much anger and confusion inside

that i feel primitive, the violent sick thoughts and emotions inside are tethered togethered, vined in strange fashions, they breathe through terror films, through avenues of shock.

Someone said

that a bomb had hit our building. her face was about to crumble. i was about to move, but my back hurt so much. i did not know what to do. someone banged opened the door, asked

You can only be a victim for so long before

you victimize yourself. You become lazy because no one taught you to be industrious. you are so angry at those who made you into a target, a thing, a transferrance

The stars

are beacons in the night whose curly hair, dark melliflous inkblot the light brushstrokes of God, dotted for the universe to breathe. no breath can hold the sound of a star trailing off

Where has the ground gone?

Where is that warm-hearted feeling of security? Only dry seeds left out in the thunderstorm, no elevation of feeling to the eiffel tower of a long-lasting orgasm,

Fall Nights

the mad hairs of the wind are unloosed, they shake and drum eerily on the windows, almost an old clairvoyant knocking on the door to tell me something terrible. look at those eyes
Cherry

Just a grammatical ornament 1

i got to tell you that i'm nothing important. i mean, i'm just a grammatical thing. the great thing is i can change from being a (.) to a (!) within seconds.

IN little, small pains

my body longs to sleep wounded, the lusty dream of America muddied by everyday experience. the long backbone of the goddess feeds longed for souls of optimism into me,

Just a grammatical ornament 2

you see what a tough job i have. i wouldn't want it any other way though. i mean, i like the universe of grammatical signs. The exclamation mark looks like a bat.

Just a grammatical ornament 3

but it's true. no matter how much i try to delight in being a sign, i really wanted to be a word.

Just a grammatical thing 4

The period then made its dull appearance: "I'm the period and i am not BORING!

Just a grammatical thing 5

% and $ stared at me for a while, perhaps trying to figure me out. "So they stuck you here with us for attempting to assault (?"

my heart slowly opens

my heart went blank as the mind does, it was as if it had lost all its memories, loving become but a fad, nothing to hold onto, for so long it was a heart that wanted more than anything

Don't push so hard

the door is meant to be closed. it's not what you think, the center does not hold the answers, only animals live there, it's a puzzle why we are trying to see something as banal as a zoo.

Why is it so hard to change?

after realizing you can't go on the way you've been living, that it's just not going to work, why does it take cancer, being sued, being humiliated, being taken past the breaking point

Love stretches

a kiss to kiss, a moist succulent strawberry of tongue cherished and embellished, diving nude to meet its partner in a swollen embrace, the throb of desire thumping madly,

Sometimes we want the world

so bad, it's an ache that longs to be held. we want to make the world a home, we want to prove that we struggled with the world as Jacob struggled with God and we won, it's so inevitable

DO NOT

make me into an image which flies into oblivion, embraces bliss, turns into a burning light which burns out when all things are seen... do not, have pity on me Lord,

Where have you gone

into the thick of the night into the forest as green and envious as money paper bills fluttering, buttered by the sighs and flatteries of young boys, your thumping throes...

Oh Lord, have pity on me

Oh Lord, have pity on me, don't strike me with your awful rod... I was a yellow sheep, I felt so underappreciated and ignored... i wanted nothing more than your love amor, sa rang, te amo...

do not flower too well

your breathe, the stem... you grow below the sunshine, stretching hairs of light breathe, your grow with tension: do not long to become the full radiance where life will eat you

Do not think that what you see is...

what you get, there is no truth in what you see the value of which has been defined repeated through tv radio friends and others, but look deeper look within the eyes and search

Let me go

Let me go... I am not what you think of me... that is your idea. in the mountains and valleys of your memories, I reside longing, pining for the nights when under the brightest stars

When lust, I feel so horny, I wonder

if there is a woman as cheap as old abandoned cigarettes hand-rolled: to release to eject my frustrations with this fucking world which sells itself as modes of desire

those women who work well beyond their means

are sharp smart and a delight breaking down stereotypes, there is nothing in this world that is so precious that love does not exist there. i was headstrong, strung-out an electronic buzz

Do not love to hate me

because i am ugly. at least i've got character. i got color baby, i got something to give. Be indifferent to me instead knowing me a fool for you loving you more than you can know.

They'll make you work

to get your money which they are stealing from you. they'll make you work just to get back what you deserve. they'll make you work for honey they'll make you work like a dog.

Glory to God

in the highest, Christ has risen, he has conquered Satan and saved us from the horror the horror of our sins. we have done so much wrong schooled so many souls to death

Joseph Campbell

in the pain is the rapture of life, he said, our agon is our stillness, our separation from the world, our own little home. it's hard, but you must build a wall

To hate our enemies

to hate those who stall who make you wait so long for what you deserve is not easy, waiting in line for heaven's gate, waiting for eternity to shine its light. it's not easy to wait so long

Let me not sugar

you with the flow of love, lust upon your bushes of hair... toss all caution to the wind and slice my hands as though I were cutting thin air... do not say that you love me

Through the streets I wandered...

through the streets, i could see old Korea everywhere, they were all there the old servants, the old yang-bans, they were there, Korea was a land of the spirits... the will was there

do not

think me a mere fool to be played upon... i am a serious man possessed of many devious talents which i carry in my sleeve, do not think i possess venom, NO I possess sarcasm to make me a tool

Do not judge me so harshly

and bethink me a fool's delight, my mind is as clear as morning light in the throes of a summer height, do not think that I do not love thee well, nor bethink that i do not tread the narrow path

Jim & Nico

Hey Jim. Hey Nico. What's up? Nothing much. I feel like throwing myself off this cliff. Why? I dunno. Just because. Really? Really.

Within the silence

there is such violence brewing, I don't know what to say... righteous anger dipped in silence, the meal is not quite right. i do not know what it means to love anymore

let me not be seduced

by the ways of this world, let me keep a sacred and loving space in my soul, let me not think that everything has a price tag, let me know the true value of friendship, worth...

I am

fragile, easily broken, forgettable, my touch is gentle, quiet and disturbed like curtains rustling in the breeze, i wish to know, to have a definite opinion, but I don't, i simply waver

Visitor 2

She seemed to be looking into his eyes, searching for something real, something concrete. For a short time, her eyes almost felt like flashlights.

Visitor 3

"Where are you from anyway?" she asked as she lit another cigarette. "South Korea?" "What gives you the right to write about me?" she asked curiously, "What do you really know about me?"

Why do I crave

pornography to snuff out the ends of my confusion, i seek something in the night something in the day, some thing to light my way, why do i so poorly crave pornography?

the holy spirit has left me

all alone. I feel like a stranger to myself, not knowing my origins or how the source flows into my dreams and myself. I feel like a thing rather than a human filled with heart,

Do you FEEL accepted

accepted now that you're fabulously wealthy, able to buy anything you want? did the sting of social rejection leave you? do you feel beautiful now after so many plastic surgeries?

Do not leave me Lord

please, stay with me, create within me a pure heart filled with love a heart to live in glowing from the overflow of love from you. i cannot love people

First Love

I think I fell in love with her when I first met her. She was so cute. I was obsessed with cuteness and beauty.
Cherry

In wanting so much to be loved

I find myself spoiling my kids, acting ridiculous, simply being not really trying to teach my kids the rules of life. I wanted my kids to hug me so hard after every gift

First Love 2

YES, they would pull us apart. We were so together and they would pull us completely apart. At first, people love to be around people who are in love... soon, the novelty of love fades.

First Love 3

When Beth and I broke up, that's when strange things started happening. Girls like Linda and Robin started to find me attractive. It occurred to me that they had read some of my notes to Beth.

First Love 4

Yes, I had felt nothing. Old feelings die hard. I have tried to find those old feelings again and again and they just aren't there.

Hypocrite

Have I become a hypocrite? I please myself, a masturbater because the world did not love me I indulge myself and eat myself to pleasure having a low self-esteem, I try to reward myself.

Warm, Spring...

is miraculous when the moon is half afloat, I wish to ignite the stars and sing lullabies to the dead. the whisper of the night striking in repose, a lovely smile

The Pretender

He had no self-esteem and there was a big hole in his heart. He felt especially jealous of his brother when his brother got accepted at Harvard Law School.

New Hampshire Spring is...

really something else, the warm zephyrs rolled like a perfect joint, ascending sigh, the waves of sound huddling shrubs shiver bubbles: tell me tell me that you love me, your heart

Korean Americans

All the names have been changed. I am not trying to generalize about Korean-Americans. I am just trying to write about their lives.

Korean Americans : Kevin

Kevin talks about how difficult the divorce was for him. He really loved his American mother. After the divorce, he wanted to meet his biological mother, his Korean mother.

new hampshire spring waits

after the piiter-patter pawprints of rain, after the butterfly prints of snow, spring showers one with twirls of breeze-tossed hair... it seemed so cold just moments ago

When things go wrong

do not internalize, do not think you deserved it. some days, everything is fine everything is working then there's a hint of something a bit off and you go on and on, almost

Don't resign yourself

and think the machinery of repetition will ruin your dawn with the force of the sun, there is so much breath and hope in every drop of sweat which works to mend the soul of forever growing...

New in America 1

I came to America in 1981 with my family. To be more precise, we came to Pennsylvania. When our airplane was landing in Philadelphia, the lights of the city appeared like fallen stars.

New in America 2

In the classroom, I had no idea what was going on. I had no idea what the teacher was saying. After a week, the teacher handed out quizzes. I had no idea what was written on the piece of paper.

New in America 3

I felt distant myself. I missed my friends in Korea.

The Plan

I awoke up one day to discover that my mother had made breakfast for me: "Thanks mom." "I wanted to talk to you about something." "Talk."

The Plan 2

So that summer, Derek really began to study. He had a good mind. Actually, he had an excellent mind. He quickly absorbed the lessons of his mother who supervised his training with minute attention.

The Plan 4

How could he have gotten those 2 problems wrong?

The Plan 5

When he stepped onto the campus of Philips Academy, he felt that he was one step closer to his immediate goal, to go to Harvard. It was no longer about what his mother wanted. It was what he wanted.

The Plan 6

It was the first party that he had been to. It really wasn't all that different from what he imagined it to be.

The Plan 7

Derek walked downstairs. The Jazz music floated all around him. It sounded delicious. He sat himself down in front of the tv with the few others who had no friends. "Derek, is it?"

Plan 8

"Thank you so much." "You are welcome," Derek replied. "You don't want any money?" "What is your name? You never told me your name."

Plan 9

"Why are you doing this to me?" Derek asked. "Because I like to. I like to find out what people are." "It can't just be curiosity." "It is." "You're not going to tell anyone, are you?"

Plan 10

"Tell me about yourself Sarah? Why'd you come all the way to Andover?" "I want to succeed in America," Sarah answered. She took out a cigarette from her purse. She lit it quickly and inhaled.

Speak, Memory

"What memory would you like to erase?" asked the head nurse. "A... rape memory," Frederick started, "I raped a woman." "Just one woman?"

rain

drumbeats under the gray clouds, clear slanted lines some plants fold around you, little and so many slide to plop and there is the sound, so many feet dancing... for so many days

Let us not forever be enemies

let us not forever hate each other, remember once we lay in each other's arms and loved all night. you loved my yellow skin and found me evil but delighted in saying so.

you would wage war upon me

would you do such a thing? wage a war upon me? are we not best friends, you just like me? thanatos turns into eros when the cycle turns, do not wage a war upon me for you will surely win.

Postmodernism in America

I hear the word, "Postmodernism," in churches and often I get a sense that the person does not really know what he is talking about.

Postmodernism in America 2

That's the facade of postmodernism in America, the Marxist, Anthropological angle on life. Behind the facade though, there is the real Postmodernism.

Postmodernism in America 3

Years ago, I loved reading the works of Hermann Hesse, who partly inspired the Hippi lifestyles of the American left in the sixties. He also inspired George Lucas and his mediocre Star Wars films.

Postmodernism in America 4

America is a land that prides itself in its uniqueness. Its robust individuality is something that Byron loved, Oscar Wilde found ironically humorous, And De Tocqueville celebrated.

Postmodernism in America 6

Nietzsche's critique of Western Philosophy:

Postmodernism in America 7

Freud: Influence in Hollywood: 1. thanatos - the military, anti-social death instinct. 2. eros - the multifold, life affirming sexual instinct.

You are

truly celestrial, celebrated wunderbar wishmaker... tell me, doth thou not have your WASP sharpness back, that aristocratic cruelty and discrimination?

elousia della bella

I'm deeply indebted to Professor Michael Porter and his book "Competitive Advantage" in discussing how Koreans apply their nature to business.

MOSSAD

"Trisha, are you a Jew?" "Yes. Both my mother and father are Jewish although they have some French blood in them." "I did not ask whether your parents were Jewish, I asked if you were a Jew."

MOSSAD 2

"Where am I?" Trisha asked. "You are in the land of the spirits," a woman answered. "What is the land of the spirits?" "It is a place where everything is permissible."

Do not

do this. push me beyond my limits, the ego breaks and dissolves. do not open the window through which sheer insanity and lunacy reside, I will not jump into that place.

MOSSAD 3

Trisha flew once again into the air, up-the-airs of consciousness, a staircase of Airs, spirits who fueled her flight. Then, there were the Passions, Fires who burned her heart into purest gold.

MOSSAD 4

i think she is waking up. she sure slept for a long time. do you think she would make a good comrade. it's too early to tell. are you sure she is a Jew. yes, we've checked all the records.

Harvard 1

Trisha Trousseau arrived at Harvard University in the Fall of 2011. She wore sunglasses and kept away from most students. Her new name was Rachel Eckermann.
Cherry

Working Class Blues

I love those women who tap their fingers, waiting waiting how long must we be waiters or waitresses? I remember working as a waiter in a Japanese Restaurant in Winston-Salem, NC?

Please

do not let the overflow of love overwhelm my heart with sorrow, your lusty eyes, your sweet excess has driven me near the cliffs of madness. my heart weeps into the night

Lost

I must admit I am Lost inside myself. I don't know how to get out, I've thrown away the key and it's about to storm. Help! I may drown into the dawn. Shall I be ashamed

With the sword of the sun, the shine

progresses, do not break me down into pieces with the shines of the sun, taking off my masks and envy, cutting off the lust of my body, greening my flesh til it turns into virtual death.

Harvard 2

"Our economy is at a standstill. Nothing is going to get us through this," One horseman stated while drinking scotch.

Harvard 3

Was I sure of anything anymore? I had been so sure of killing those spies, those spies who had threatened US security, who had betrayed us, me. Now, I wondered what the point of it all was?

Fall

it's here and when the leaves fall, the light strikes it, baked yellow and orange. the leaves curl inward over time, having displayed its dying colors, it closed

Has it been?

so many nights when the moon over and over again bathes in streams looking for dead lovers, sighing after lulls of love, pauses of not knowing. we met in secret

Don't you forget about me 1

I can't forget about her. No matter how much I try to scrub her out of my mind, I just can't. She's stuck inside of me like some piece of gum that I've accidentally swallowed.

Don't you forget about me 2

"Can I please speak to Kevin?" "Kevin not home," his mother said. "Can you give him a message?" There was a pause... "What is message?" his mother asked.

Don't you forget about me 3

There she was again... Brook. She looked so beautiful to Kevin. Her blue eyes looked like stars in space. Her blond hair looked like the rays of a warm and embracing sun.

So many times

you are there in the holes, in the mirrors of my imagination, comforting kindness cuts, flashes of true emotion floods then flutters. you soothe me, your bright halo burns my blood

Don't you forget about me 4

Kevin wondered what a good chink was as opposed to a bad chink. Was a good chink a chink who obeyed his parents and loved Korea? Was a bad chink someone who loved white girls and caused a riot?

Don't you forget about me 5

Did she really like me? Why would she like me though? I am not handsome and sporty like those boys who hung around her, basking in her light. I was cute though. Did she like cute?

Don't you forget about me 6

"Brook," Kevin said. Then he tried to look into her eyes. It was hard. He was so overwhelmed by her. "What, Kevin?"

Don't you forget about me 7

"Hello, may I speak to Brook?" Jennifer asked. "May I ask who this is?" Brook's mother asked.

Don't you forget about me 8

Jennifer looked at Kevin. Kevin was looking down at his lap. "I don't think I love Brook anymore," he blurted. "Why?" "I just don't." "You were so obsessed with her."

Don't you forget about me 10

Kevin walked to school with a serious face. He felt like he was wearing a mask but he didn't care. He wasn't going to be funny and cute anymore. He wanted more than anything to be taken seriously.

Korean-American Psycho 1

I am a faceless being. I don't mean that I don't have eyes, ears, lips and a canvas on which those forms exist. I mean that I have completely lost my ego.

Korean-American Psycho 2

When I woke up, I realized that she had tied ropes around the bed so that I could not move. "What's the idea?" he asked. "I have a few questions for you." she answered.

Korean-American Psycho 3

She sat at the bar, waiting. She was like a spider waiting for a fly to get stuck in her web. Someone sat next to her, looked around a little bit and then ordered a Corona.

Korean-American Psycho 4

"It's quite a place. Why do you have all these pictures of handsome men on the wall? I'm a bit jealous." "Former boyfriends," she answered. "Is my picture going to be on the wall also?"

Korean-American Psycho 5

She remembered: "So what makes you want to become a killer?"

Korean-American Psycho 6

She remembered: "So you blame the white man?" "Yes." "But there are yellow men, black men, and Hispanic men who get away with crime also. O.J. Simpson for one." "I just kill the white man."

Mother and Daughter 1

I am a Korean and very proud of it. Our history has been a tough one. Very tough. I am proud of it. I emigrated out of South Korea because my husband was cheating on me and he could not stop.

Mother and Daughter 2

I am seven. My mother and I are moving to America. My mother tells me that dad is staying in Korea for a while. I will miss him although he was rarely home.

Mother and Daughter 3

I feel alone and yet free. I can't believe I left my husband to come to America. I did not know my will was so strong. My daughter, she is with me, yet I feel alone. I can't help this feeling.

Mother and Daughter 4

I wanted to kill my husband, my daughter's father. He just would not stop cheating on me. I asked him why he cheated, if I was not enough for him and he told me that he deserved affairs.

Where does life come from?

or where does new life come from, from rain, just like for the plants, we tear rain let go of old sorrows, cry and drink out what has wounded us, drained us made us hate life with all our fists.

Who lies behind the masks

behind the blind of the mask, the story untold is the river of deep sounds. the water washes away the masks, lets them go like bird in the sky, uncaged, you let go of the masks

first love

i thought you were too cute too unbelievably beautiful for me and then seeing you, dating you talking to you via the phone, it was more than i could ask for, and then when you laughed

What's missing from my life

Is adventure, the opening of the heart To joy, to being Breathing my bliss Threading through and through. What has made me so afraid? The dark waters in me flood

The Cult

Gabriel sat in the comfortable seat with his eyes almost closed. From the center of the ceiling, he could see a bright, sharp light hitting the two bodies. The Spring Equinox popped into his mind.

The Cult 2

Gabriel entered his room. He took off his mask. Half of his mask was black and the other half white. He was tired. He wanted to sleep on the bed. Knock! Knock! It's open. Come in.

Morning After 1

I am in a deep ocean. It is breathing. It's so nice in here with all these fish swimming around. I hear a voice above the waters but I can't make out the words.

Morning After 2

"There is nothing wrong with his brain. It is performing perfectly. The surgery on his brain was a complete success. His physical functions are also fine.

Morning After 3

"So you don't remember a thing about my daughter," Rachel's father said. "Not one thing. I know this is horrible, but it's the truth. I remember you though," Jay said.

Morning After 4

"There really is no context." "They really mean that the context is only temporary. Look at any text. It occurs at a certain time and in a certain place. That is context. The text is not absolute."

Morning After 5

Jay Lee worked in the law office for six hours without taking any kind of break.

Morning After 6

"Everything is a text," Rachel stated definitively.

Morning After 7

"Do you think she knows that you are having an affair?" Julie asked. "She doesn't suspect a thing. She's still angry that my memory has chosen to forget her exclusively," Jay responded.

Morning After 8

"I want you to stop," Rachel said. "stop what?" "Stop fucking Julie." "I can't really have sex. I blackout." "Stop seeing her." "I'm sorry."

Lost

I don't know who I am anymore. NOT LIKE I knew who I was before, but I feel drained of my feelings. The truth is... I don't even know how to have feelings. My father: he works all the time.

Lost 2

Claire Kim eyed Brian pityingly. "Have you accepted Christ as your savior yet?" "No. Can you pray for me?"

Lost 3

The thing is I really like Claire. She's fucking hot, at least for a Korean even though she does not have those large boobs that Caucasian or black girls have.

Lost 4

Brian's Father cried for a long time. His tears were hot and filled with repressed feelings. He wondered what had happened to filial piety.

The Face

On my 13th birthday, my Father gave me a present. It was the first time that he ever gave me a present that was not money. He left the present in my room and I was very curious as to what it was.

The Face 2

The FACE stared at him. He stared at the FACE. Should he wear it... He stared at himself in the mirror. He looked into his dark eyes. Did he hypnotize himself? Should he wear it...

The Face 3

He sat quietly in his seat, waiting for his Father to take the first bite of rice. Then, he began to eat rice, kimchi, chi-gae, and other foods. But he could not taste the food.

Face 4

He tried to think about how many human beings his ancestors had eaten already.

Missing You

Don't leave me in the rain In the wind In the snow you have meant so much to me, your voice a spiritual whisper, a slipper of delight, don't footprint me knowing how I need you love you

Where do Korean-Americans fit in in a Postmodern America 1

Recently I read an article in the New York Times about Asians in New York and the rigorous way they prepared for standarized tests to get into the top public high schools.

Where do Korean-Americans fit in in a Postmodern America 3

There are a few distinct differences between Jews and East-Asians. Jews, in general, are more liberal than East-Asians.

Where do Korean-Americans fit in in a Postmodern America 4

The definition of WASP has changed over time. No longer does the anagram refer to Northern European White Anglo-Saxon Protestant Elites who once were the ruling class.

Ouvrir le fair

you ask me if i love you to fair and forbear... you lovely twisted blonde hair a veritable english heir. your estate is luxurious, your curves bendacious, boldacious, crude.

Plato and Ayn Rand and other things

Plato believed in the primacy of the idea. Ayn Rand, in the primacy of the thing. cultural producers have an idea and they make the thing, the product. it is mass produced for the people.

What has happened?

What happened to those beautiful and light Jewish faces which light up like candles illuminate cherish love and pure feelings religious overflow that was so giving to others?

Michael Porter's Competitive Advantage 1

Michael Porter is one of the great interpreters of the business world. There is Stephen Covey, but Stephen Covey focuses heavily on human resources and their capacities.

Michael Porter's Competitive Advantage 2

From the suppliers, one gets all the tools to make a "pizza." If one decides to go with a franchise, one gets the advantage of the low-costs that are extended to the franchisor.

Michael Porter's Competitive Advantage 3

So is everything is dependent upon context as the Postmodernists say, is individuality dead?

Please Wait

do not accuse me of such things, it is untrue... as your image is divine minted with the flavors of the Holy Spirit, your love transparents... my devotion to you is as true

Thinking of You

Pride and Prejudice

When one speaks racism, one must speak of pride. It is the pride of one race over another race that causes racism.

Pride and Prejudice 2

As a Korean-American, I often feel an anxiety of cultural influence from both South Korea and America.

Pride and Prejudice 3

I suppose, in one way, it does make me a racist.

Pride and Prejudice 4

I have seen you sometime before

I have seen you sometime before before the light began to glow heads abuzz with ideas, before the lights began to glow. I have wandered through the streets seeking solace in my loneliness.

I have imagined stars

to be happier than I, shining from so far away so cold they look although they are actually hot. My self was broken and damaged looking like the pieces of a dying art I was driven to despair

It's so hard to let go of you

i cant say why but it's so hard. i'm trying and trying and trying and its still hard hard as nails stuck in time unwilling to let go of the wood. you come inside of me like a spirit
