아니다 Not Just So…– Write by 이정록 Lee, Jeonglock

 

아니다

채찍 휘두르라고
말 엉덩이가 포동포동한 게 아니다.

번쩍 잡아채라고
토끼 귀가 쫑긋한 게 아니다.

아니다
꿀밤 맞으려고
내 머리가 단단한 게 아니다.

 

『콧구멍만 바쁘다』2009 창비

 

Not Just So…

 

Horses’ rumps are not plump
Just so that you can whip them

Rabbits’ ears do not stick up
Just so that you can grab them
Not just so…

My head is not hard
Just so that you can thump it

 

From Only Noses Are Busy (Chang-bi,2009)
