Forever young.


阿城, "听敌台"

"There was alcohol that night. Educated youths from Kunming, Shanghai, and Sichuan—with their guitars—all went to the small reservoir in the mountain. We drank naked, played music, plunged into the water, and let little fish nibble on our dicks. The women giggled and laughed, food forever in their mouths. Everything I had brought back from Beijing was consumed right away. The bright moon hung in the sky, and the constellations sparkled luminously. May we live forever and be forever young."

"On Listening to Enemy Radio" by Ah Cheng
(translated by Yurou Zhong)
