SOUTH KOREA 2006

Love? Yes please!

Doraji doraji doraji! I walk over the pass where balloon flowers bloom. Hey-ya, hey! An ya hey say yo! I walk over the pass where balloon flowers bloom. Hey-ha hey! An ya hey say yo! Reminds me of mother and twinkling boys. Hey-ya, hey! An ya hey say yo!

Homeless as a fly

Homeless as a fly

you lactated on my tongue

¬†– — – ———

a pillow by night

and a sack by day

now my petals

begin to fall
