It Must Have Been Planned by Yin Li-Chuan

Translated by Joanna Sit

 

 

After we parted

Saddam vanished

 

SARS broke out

Nurses were braver than big sister

 

My stomach still hurts.

 

Frostbite got your leg

at the foot of the Himalayas

again, someone else climed and claimed it.

They all proclaimed "how great!"

 

After we parted

we never embraced again.

 

A young man was captured, beaten to death.

The assassins younger than you.
