Kota Tua

Setelah malam lelah membungkuk
Pagi membuka kerut wajah keriput
Kota berdandan
Orang bergegas
Wangi parfum berganti bau keringat
Embun pergi
Udara busuk
Jarum jam berputar cepat
Bayangan-bayangan bergerak
Aspal terbakar

Aku di tengah pusaran manusia pemuja
apa saja
Berdiri diam
Tak ada yang kukejar
Tempatku pulang sudah ditentukan

Matahari ke barat
Bayang-bayang memanjang
Orang-orang berdandan
Mandi dan wangi
Kota bergegas memainkan sihir cahaya
Satu babak dimulai lagi tanpa jeda

      • Alf, if I had the money, I would buy your work. I am a retired school teacher and no savings…my biggest extravagance is my WordPress blog. There is no cable out where I live, so the internet speed is very slow: 1.5Mbps. I was hoping to get a job teaching online, but I am out of luck because the speed of the internet is not fast enough. My blog helps me with my sanity. Reading your words and seeing your wonderful art work makes my day!

        • Jane, it touch my heart. I am not sure if there any teaching job online, there. But you can try an online freelance job like upwork(.)com. There are a lot freelance jobs. I get one or two jobs sometime.
