This is the English version of a collection of poems by poet Hwang In-chan. Everyday scenes flow like a plain confession and become a piece of poetry. The trivial conversations, sometimes like jokes and sometimes meaningless, approach me coldly and honestly, and the more I think about them, the more I think there will be some truth in them. The repeated conversations in the poem do not stop the attempt to reach understanding, even if it does not lead to complete understanding.
