so much depends
upon

an unsmiling bronze
girl

clad in plain, tattered 
hanbok

The author's comments:

This poem is based on William Carlos Williams' "The Red Wheelbarrow." It was inspired by the bronze statue built in remembrance of comfort women in Seoul, South Korea, outside of the Japanese embassy.
