Some background on one of the pieces, “Bar Fine.” To be blunt, this one is about sex trafficking. More specifically, it is about the sex trade in South Korea, where I lived for 8.5 months, about a decade ago. So, if you are sensitive to this subject, you may want to skip this one. It is the second poem listed.
This poem, for obvious reasons, was hard to place among my Korea-themed poems. However, I believe in the poem and its message, so I am thankful that Dead Snakes gave me the opportunity to share it.
