The Footprints of the Moon

Kim Goni

Follow the footprints engraved on the hillside

The night when even hungry snowflakes cried
The beast that trudged back to the mountain
fills the belly with footprints

A hunger that cannot be satisfied
even with the tears of the stars

Staggering Cold Ankles

The owner of the footprints is probably the moon

The thin moon returned to the sky,
carrying the beast that had turned into snowflakes

달의 발자국

산비탈에 새겨진 발자국을 따라간다

허기진 눈꽃도 울음을 울던 밤
터덜터덜 산으로 돌아가던 짐승이
발자국으로 배를 채운다

별의 눈물로도 채울 수 없는 허기

비틀거리는 시린 발목

발자국의 주인은 아마도
달이었을 것이다

눈꽃이 되어버린 짐승을 업고
하늘로 돌아가던 야윈 달
