Listen above to Chenxin Jiang read her translation of Yau Ching's "Trial Run"
as a door-nail
and gone to the world
air broke drop
nothing is certain but and taxes
mask knell grip
blow metal rattle
food for worms sticky end brown bread
or alive valiant to the la la la
wish I were yeah right you wish

Listen above to poet Yau Ching read "Trial Run" in the original Cantonese
不能復生視 如歸 而無憾
出生入 一線間 生契濶
寧 不屈 鳴不默
憂患不終無安樂 啦 啦啦
