The Wilderness Downtown

(Yes I listened to The Suburbs while writing this post)

There’s a mountain in my backyard. Cheongmyeongsan mountain, so be specific.


Suwon is a city of one million, and Yeongtong is a lively neighborhood- full of lights, music and young people.

“some cities make you lose your head”

But just around the corner there’s a forest-

i wonder if the world's so small

It smells like woods- aromatic, herbal, and nostalgic. I never expected to find this place in suburban South Korea.

But just through the trees, the sprawl remains-


shiny white buildings just beyond

“We’re still kids in buses/ Longing to be free” It’s appropriate, I take the bus
