[ac-i] Purnama Berkeley

2.  Purnama Berkeley

 

purnama Berkeley temaram bercahaya

mengundang menari di pucuk-pucuk cemara

berlari-larian di lembah pinus

"aku takut pada dingin," kutolak berulang kali

dengan berat hati

 

"kamu kan sudah biasa sendiri,

purnama Berkeley" bisikku dari dalam lengang

"menunggu lembah merangsang jari bergoyang-goyang

angin menari-nari"

kupadamkan lampu kamar, aku bersembunyi

dua perempuan di kanan kiri berjumpa di dalam mimpi

 

purnama Berkeley tak jemunya mengundang

 ke luar kamar merangsang dan menantang

tengah malam, kamarku gelap, cahaya

purnama mengirim mesra

memacu kami bertiga berkejar-kejaran di taman

pucuk-pucuk cemara, petak umpat di antara pepohonan

pinus, dan di balik bayang anak dan istri

 

sayang, aku mengundangmu malam ini

kuharapkan bertemu dalam mimpi

ternyata tidak, benakku penuh acara masa depan,

jaringan baru, api membakar tungku

perciknya membuat purnama Berkeley cemburu

2. Full Moon in Berkeley

 

In Berkeley the full moon's pallour glows

and on the tips of redwoods it issues

an invitation to dance

and run in the valley of pines;

with heavy heart I reject each call

" I fear the cold"

 

"but you are used to being alone,

Berkeley moon" I whisper in the pause

"as you watch over the valley, arousing fingers to writhe,

the wind to dance"

In the room I turn off the lights and hide

from my left and right two women

meet in in a dream

 

The Berkeley moon issues its tireless invitation

to leave the room; it arouses, provokes!

mid night, my room in darkness, the glow

of the moon sends an intimate transmission

urging us three to the chase in the garden

of redwood tops, to hide and seek among the pines

beyond the shadow of wife and child

love, I invited you this night

hoping to meet you in a dream

but no; my mind too filled with future plans,

new networks, is fire burning in the hearth;

its sparks make the Barkeley moon jealous.

 

(Hey Gary and Sylvia, what has Indonesia's Berkeley Mafia produced?)
