In Korean, 바람 relates to “wind” and “affair”
so don’t feed your husband chicken wings
or give a lover shoes. I’ve been mispronouncing gobbledygook
& wondering about Korean fried chicken
as well as old delicacies—chicken stewed in dates and ginseng.
I flew to America with Hodori, the 1988 Seoul Olympics mascot,
and narrow boat shoes. I cried the entire flight.
바람 wind + 피다 to smoke =바람피다 to cheat
my birth-father ran home so fast, the wind burned.
