somewhere behind the unrolled scroll section
depicting a Joseon king’s palanquin
procession at the gallery’s entrance,
after white rooms strewn with ceremonial
ceramics blue as clouds, beyond rainbow
embroidered robes of courtiers and small-
font explanations of Confucianism,
atop a wide formica pillar, encased alone
in glass, stands a wood-carved dog-looking lion
saddling a disc ringed in wagging flames
upon its back the placard calls a karma
mirror. whatever gilded circle once hung
at its center is gone, leaving a blank
pool of black enamel wreathed by an eight-
point star of faded red paint fire. an om
drawn on the reverse side is still visible
in silver, the sanskrit’s serifs squared off
by the calligrapher’s boxy Hangul
hand. beneath its medium and circa
dates I read what it was for, how life looked
in its face at death when that cosmic concept
recalled what evil or righteousness it could
of the recently deceased. in the next-to-last
hall of the special exhibition, surrounded 
by contemporaries, the statue’s label
claims it’s a copy of the real one in the myth,
dispossessed of omniscience and mystery
made to fill a corner of its former
owners’ holy place and remind them gods
were watching. the stylized cirrus whiskers
on its creature base trail me past the machine
that prints names in phoneticized Korean.
