[ac-i] Bungalow Ubud

12.Bungalow Ubud.

 

Di sini selain kamboja, ada lain bunga

dilumat pengembara

 

Entah dicatat dewa, ditonton bidadari

mereka asyik meluluhkan diri.

 

Bali menggelar dua pintu serupa

gang tembus ke sorga dan neraka.

 

 

 Ubud,  15 Oct. 20054

 

12. Ubud bungalow

 

here, as well as frangipani, are other flowers

trodden into the ground by visitors

 

i don't know if they're noted by the gods, watched by angels

they enjoy crushing themselves.

 

bali proffers two matching doors

pathways to heaven and to hell.

13. Di angkasa

 

Kusimpan setangkai bunga dari Ubud,

walau semalam sorang sobat berkomentar,

"You are always not at home."

 

Dalam senyumku, aku berbisik

"aku memang sedang mencari rumah

sampai  ke sudut-sudut dunia,

 

karena belum menemukan rumah

karena belum mempunyai rumah"

 

Di angkasa di atas pulau Bali

menuju  Jakarta, rumah yang dicari-cari

matahari menembus jendela, buih riap pantai

awan, berlapis-lapis kesenyapan khayali

 

Tapi memang di sinilah aku berumah

 

Kurogoh dari saku kembang kamboja

yang kubawa dari Ubud, sudah layu tanpa jiwa

 

Bali - Jakarta, 18 Okt 2004.

 

13. In space

 

i keep a flower from ubud

yet last night a friend commented

"you are always not at home."

 

smiling, i whisper

"actually i am seeking a place to live

anywhere on earth

as i have never yet found a place

as i have never yet owned a place

 

in the sky above bali

heading for jakarta, seeking a home

the sun shines through the window,

clouds, in layers of imaginary silence

 

but this is where i have a house

 

i pull from my pocket the frangipani

i brought from ubud, it's already limp, soul-less
