A Walking Lake – Lee, Jae-mu

A Walking Lake

The cow’s large eyes are like a lake—
A lake pooled with tears.
As the cow looks up,
A mountain submerges in it.
As it looks up at the sky,
Clouds submerge in it too.
As it blinks,
The mountain slips out of it.
As it blinks again,
The clouds slip out too.
The cow carries a slowly walking lake with it.
