My City and Somewhere Else

My City and Somewhere Else

Poet Agnes Lam has published and read her work in many far-off places, but her home base remains Hong Kong. What does this city mean to someone after more than half a century? What secret messages has she received from a sparrow hopping on the pavement, evening moths appearing in silence during SARS or a beheaded corpse discovered off the Tsing Yi coast? Beyond Hong Kong, what ghosts does the chime of a bell in Mumbai awaken? What do the stars portend and what answer has her camel walker in the Sahara offered? Join us as we celebrate the many voices in Agnes Lam’s poetry.

我城/他城
詩人林舜玲雖然在世界各地出版作品,但她仍情繫故土香港。超過半個世紀後重遊故地,此城對她有何意義?道上蹦跳的麻雀、出現在沙士一片死寂中的晚蛾、青衣海畔的無頭屍,種種浮沉世事又隱含什麽訊息?香港以外,孟買的鐘聲喚醒了誰的鬼魂?撒哈拉的漫天星宿有何預示?星光下的駱駝客留給她什麽答案?讀詩會中我們將一同探索林舜玲詩歌中的獨特意蘊。
