9.Pesan singkat.

 

Kuketik pesan singkat kepada tiga kawan

meletas dari kamar 201, bagai kilat membelah awan

"aku bingung jadi burjuis

tapi ketagihan"

 

berturut-turut mereka menjawab

rossa: "selamat menikmati jadi burjuis"

tinuk: "jangan lupa diri jadi  burjuis"

ilham: "himpunlah tenaga sebelum berlaga"

padahal aku dedongkot burjuis kecil

menunggang kuda bersama mereka

mengejar impian.

9. brief  message

 

i type a brief message to three friends

flashing from room 201 like lightning splitting clouds

"i'm confused at being bourgeois

but crave it"

 

they reply one by one

rossa: "enjoy being bourgeois"

tinuk: "don't forget yourself, bourgeois"

ilham: "build up your energy before you compete"

yet i am the vanguard of the petty bourgeoisie

riding together with them

chasing dreams
