Goodbye little boy who gave me sausage sticks.
Goodbye pretty girl who helped me sweep.
Goodbye Happy the jindo dog.
Goodbye hibiscus plant, dangling laundry, pots of kimchi,
mechanical fan, rickety bike, black-and-white newspaper,
Things and people and places woven into my every hour.

I will miss you all.

Julie Cho, “Farewell to the South”
