SEOUL BUS POEMS
Jim Goar writes: “These poems were written in Seoul, South Korea, 2004-07. While most began on a bus, one began in Bangkok and others in rooms between Yonsei University and Bongwon-sa.”
Jim was born in San Francisco, California. Since then he’s lived in Tucson, Arizona; Changsha, China; Boulder, Colorado; Bangkok, Thailand; Seoul, South Korea; Norwich, England; and whenever possible, Brevard, North Carolina. He studied prose at Naropa’s Jack Kerouac School and poetry at The University of East Anglia. He edits the online Journal, past simple. Seoul Bus Poems is his first perfect bound book.
