poem: to those beautiful kdrama anti-heroes

He probably has a plain black

baseball cap (where do people even

buy those?) and one of those pollution masks

that are so vogue in smogged-up asia; or if it’s a historical

drama, he definitely has black bangs over

his eyes,

and probably a bit of a scar

and (of course) beautiful dark eyes, lightly smeared

with makeup. It is the eyes that will hold

me, because they have razed the universe under red dawns

and then turned to soft fog at twilight,

rain coming in pretty clouds when the stick-thin

actress with the too-big eyes

bites her lip and takes his hand and decides that

this boy is worth saving after all.
