Aunt Gladys Moves to Korea for the Jajangmyeon

I want

to scrub mold

from the

ice cube tiles

in my shower.

I understand

crazy things can happen

like celebrity death

in Korea

if I am not careful.

After a healthy bowl

of bean noodles

in bean sauce

I walk looking

for an apartment

in sub-freezing weather

while a freighter


Winter has come early

and I scare several


off the faces of strangers.
