Writing Poems without Meaning

의미 없는 시를 쓴다

Sham-seeming life
gauze-mask-like thoughts
is there no removing the mask from consciouness?

Disposing words without meaning
Writing poems without meaning
Writing poems like scraps of debris
scraps of shattering consciousness

의미 없는 시를 쓴다

가짜 같은 삶

마스크 같은 생각

의식의 탈을 벗을 수 없을까


의미 없는낱말을 나열한다

의미 없는 시를 쓴다

파편 같은 시를 쓴다

깨어지는 의식의 조각들
