(Excerpt)

Henry Wei Leung:

There are no beautiful places.
Only our glimpses into the celestial
Wherever we happen to be.
A pink sky; a moon:
From your side of the world too
From your solitude too.
I made a stairway of the stars,
Tied your hairband to it.
Our heavens, and our curls
Of loose hair.

Lo Mei Wa:

我的世界死去的那天
站在死掉的大草原上
一頭死掉的白髮
風沒有把死掉的我
一併送走

今天大地綠草如茵
一條條黑色的記憶
從髮根長出
我站在苦海上
看見你在彼岸
搭了一條橋
凝望著我
