setiap pagi

setiap pagi
kulihat pemandangan yang menghangatkan hati

perempuan yang menggendong dan menepuk-nepuk punggung bayi
ibu tua yang sedang membantu anaknya berpakaian
remaja yang berteriak-teriak kegirangan bermain bola keranjang
atau pria paruh baya yang berlari-lari kecil dengan pakaian olah raganya

setiap pagi
juga kulihat hatiku melayang pergi
tak hentinya menginginkanmu kembali

Stranger

Image
a stranger is taking off your clothes layer by layer,  seating you in front of the mirror and tempting you  to ask, "whose body am I wearing right now?"  a stranger is quietly writing down your life story, reflecting  on your birthdate, making up the story of the reason  of your death -  a stranger is quietly turning into yourself
(Sapardi Djoko Damono- Metamorphosis)

Hey Neighbour

You look like you've been for breakfast At the Heartbreak Hotel And sat in the back booth By the pamphlets and the literature On how to lose

But I can move on if you want me to

I don't know why I'm running in circles trying to find a miracle biding my time till you're home when I can't keep up with you but I could move on if you want me to

in your hands I am burnt

in your hands
    I am burnt
lives
death
arriving
and leaving

in your hands, I am burnt
yet I keep coming back
for more
