AN ABANDONED NOVEL, RIGHT AFTER THE START – 刘天雨

Liu Tianyu
A NOVEL THAT BROKE OFF RIGHT AFTER THE START

I cannot help to think of SARS,
how we were quarantined on campus,
couldn‘t get out of our university.
But no-one took it seriously,
day after day we played cards in our rooms.
I began to write a story,
describing love in times of crisis.
The inspiration was when I saw
a couple
kissing through a wire fence.
The way they were trying to find each other’s mouth
through the gaps in the wire,
that’s an impression
I cannot forget.
