Two Koreas – Donal Mahoney

Two Koreas

 

Some old wounds

can never be sutured

and email is always

 

the wrong needle to try.

So is the phone.

Fly to your daughter.

 

Tell her thirty years later

it’s time to end the war

between two Koreas.

 

You’re sorry you didn’t attend

the wedding she never had.

It’s not her fault she looked

 

so much like her mother.

That was another war

death would end.
