Berdebu
Lukisan usang
Potret berjamur
Ranting kering dan patah
Cermin yang berkeping
Tai tikus
Pesing bau kencing kucing
Seperti inilah rupanya
Kenangan
Menjadi warna-warna
Yang tak pernah selesai

Mungkin sudah waktunya
Satu cerita ditamatkan

Atau

Sudah waktunya hatiku
Yang harus dikosongkan

Cleaning up my memories

“Unfinished” by Alf Sukatmo. Pencil on paper.

It felt like this

Dusty
old painting
And photograph
Broken branches
Shattered mirror
Smell of piss of cat
So this is how memories feels like
Of unfinished colors

Maybe it is time to end the story
Or
Maybe it is my heart that have to be swept empty

  1. I am compelled to comment. This entire piece tells a story as if every line is a moment in life. Sometimes some memories are meant to be given up I think. To be blown away like a dead leaf on a tree preparing for winter. Making way for new leaves in the spring time.
