Hamzah Yazd and Zai Kuning performed an impromptu ‘Gazal Pauh di bibir laut’  at the Dari Pusat Tasek opening, Percha Artspace, 25 Dec 2019. Hamzah read Balada Terbunuhnya Beringin Tua di Pinggir Sebuah Bandaraya and Benarkah Ketam Mengajar Anaknya Berjalan Betul? by Usman Awang as well as Di Bibir Air and Sajak-sajak Tengah Malam by Latiff Mohidin. Here is the conclusion of sajak-sajak tengah malam

v
tujuh lautan
satu gelombang
di pusar perutmu
berpusing
denyutan purba
memanggil namaku
kuturuni bukit
kutinggalkan padang luas

aku merangkak kembali
ke lubuk kelammu

And in Hamzah’s own words, here is how the night went down –
Siuman tengah malam
Sajak sajak redam
Koboi balik kampung
Menghiris pauh ulung
