Bo go ship uh (I miss you)

by Tanya Ko Hong

I miss you
is not enough

Bo go ship uh
no subject

puffy eyes with red vein
praying before sunlight
putting away a fresh bowl of rice
between blankets to keep warm
waiting contains silence

sorrow could not touch
through DMZ
the divided country

Husband in the North
Wife in the South
Child in her belly

Bo go ship uh (I miss you) was first published in Walt's Corner: The Long-Islander Newspaper in Huntington NY on the occasion of the 30th anniversary for Walt's Corner
