in the midst

I’m in the midst of my second-to-last day of English teaching in South Korea. (I draw the phrase out to give it emphasis.) I was trying to write poetry, or anything, on my way to work (in the one-four-three), and I found myself at a loss for words. Or, more precisely, with so many words and thoughts running through my head that I was (and have been) unable to narrow them down into something meaningful yet concise. I ended up with only “I am leaving, what does this mean?” and “South Korea rhymes with diarrhoea, which is not to say anything about South Korea, only to point out a rhyme.”

Deep stuff, that.
