Autumn in Korea

The weather

Is blessedly cooler

When I open my window a cool breeze enters

Autumnal melancholy follows

So do the mosquitoes

They bite me

so many times toomanytimes

Insert vampirical pop culture reference

Yet the swift wind ushers in relief

and my swass free ass rejoices

The wind

It also brings the sounds of my neighbours domestic violence

A witty follow up would be inappropriate here

too soon

too soon.

Do they know the irony

That October is domestic violence awareness month?

I am aware.

And horrified.

And still,

The weather is cooler.

It's okay to steal persimmons from your neighbour if he hits his wife, right?

I totally snapped for you as if this were read in a dank, dark cafe.
