[ac-i] Ada Juga

3.Ada juga.

 

Los Angeles hollywood santa barbara

kulihat  pengemis mencari kehangatan manusia

diantara dedaunan berganti warna

ada juga di Amerika.

 

Santa Barbara, okt.2000

 

3. Here Too

 

Los Angeles, hollywood santa barbara

I see beggars seeking human warmth

Among the leaves of changing colors

Here too, in America.

 

Santabarbara, oct,2000

4. Dingin  Vancouver.

 

kuintip dingin Vancouver dari celah tirai

dan kutempelkan tangan memberi salam pagi

ternyata lebih dingin rusuk penjara Tangerang

yang menggigit sampai ke sumsum, penghinaan

kemanusiaan lebih tajam dari salju

 

suara gagak menyambut remang pagi bersahutan

bukan isyarat kematian

walau di Bangladesh, Sri Lanka,  melantunkan kemiskinan

gagak Vancouver mengundang mata terbuka

jendela lalu lintas wacana

membiarkan dinding dilukis beragam nuansa

lantas, di mana temanku aborigin itu

buldozer putih meratakan peradabannya

 

di dompetku, kusimpan sebuah pusaka:

mengapa ?

 

vancouver, okt 2000

 

4.Cold in Vancouver

 

From cracks in the blinds I spy upon Vancouver's cold

And stick out my hand in morning greeting

Colder still were the prison ribs of Tangerang

That bit to the bone; the slight against

Humanity sharper yet than snow

 

The call of crows greet the morning's thinning gloom

They do not sighnal death

In Bangladesh, Sri Lanka they sing the poor

But Vancouver's crows call eyes to open

A window on which dicourse travels

Allowing nuances ta paint the walls in many colours

Where then is my aborigine friends?

His civilization levelled

By bulldozers of white

 

In my wallet, I keep an heirloom:

Why?

 

Vancouver, Oct 2000
