A Cinnabontastic NPM – #5 Korean Shakespeare

I stumble and rub my forehead temples
in massive confused circles
muttering to myself some choice swear words
in staccato outbursts
wondering how did I ever get to be so incompetent
in wide-eyed twitches

Understanding the Korean language
the language of my people
has never been so much of a challenge
as it is now
when trying to understand it
in the form of a Shakespearean monologue.

To be or not to be
있음이냐 없음이냐.
