St. Andrew Kim Taegon (patron of Korean clergy)

I need a field of magnets

to pull me back home

when I wander too close to the edge

of this wide & wonderful ocean.

My mother’s hand leaps to her chest

as I dangle my toes over the rock.

Why should I be scared of such

a height?

Our flames lick the logs

from beneath. I almost fall when

the wood pops with water in the fireplace.

It must be the sound of a heart breaking.
