Imajinasi Terindah Dan Sebutir Peluru

Tepat duabelas saat malam mengetuk jendela
         Dalam sebuah kamar di rumah sakit
         Tisu demi tisu gentayangan
         Seorang lelaki terbatuk
         Gemanya merambat
         Menyusuri lorong-lorong
         Sebelum melesat keluar seperti hantu
         Melewati para penunggu yang terkantuk
         Secepat laju peluru ditembakkan masa lalu
         
Sementara itu
         Di atas sebuah meja dalam satu rumah
         Warna-warna dari imajinasi terindah
         Bergumam muram dalam sorot lampu temaram
                  “Rasanya, seperti baru kemarin ia menjadikanku”

Secangkir Kopi Dengan Bekas Lipstik Di Bibirnya

“Secangkir Kopi Dengan Bekas Lipstik Di Bibirnya”

Kita pernah ada di satu masa
Saat duduk-duduk di bangku sebuah taman adalah kemewahan
Berbekal sebotol air menunggu senja berdua saja
Tentu kita tahu
Orang-orang akan lalu lalang
Sekedar mencuri dengar kenapa kita bisa begitu bahagia
Atau bahkan mentertawakan

Lalu bangku-bangku itu tak lagi ada
Karena kita melabuhkan senja pada temaram lampu kafe
Dengan wifi gratis untuk melihatnya tanpa memangkas kuota
Orang-orang tak lagi lalu lalang
Mereka duduk diam dengan secangkir kopi atau apapun yang terpesan
Walau telah habis berjam-jam lalu

Aku mendengar bunyi samar
Taptaptap
Orang-orang nyengir
Taptaptap
Mereka tertawa
Taptaptap
Beberapa merah padam
Taptaptap
Geram
Taptaptap
Mendengus seperti segerombolan kerbau
Taptaptap
Seperti kita yang selalu bertaptaptap tanpa perlu sering bertatap muka
Kehilangan selera untuk saling melihat
Sambil menertawai diri sendiri

Aku tak ingat lagi sudah berapa lama cangkir kopiku kosong
Dan entah sejak kapan kau meninggalkan cangkir dengan bekas lipstikmu di bibirnya
Terminum setengah saja di depanku

Bukankah mengirimkan pesan “selamat malam” lebih mudah dari mengucapkan
Taptaptaptaptaptaptap
Taptaptap
Tap

Blues for Shasa

Your beautiful voice
Singing about your life
But never shows the sorrow
That tattooed on your back
We know
It peeks through your low back dress
A husband you never have
Left you a child you must raise
The people mocking you
But love never fails on you
From stage to stage
Gig after gig
You earns your peaceful life

Dear friend, Happy birthday

The Pirate’s Daughter

"Paper Boat" by Alf Sukatmo. Vector artwork.

“The Paper Boats” by Alf Sukatmo. Vector artwork.

Dee asked me to teach her how to made the boats and a pirate hat from unused brochures and a piece of old newspaper.
“Well sure, why not,” i said.
“Can we play it together?” she asked.
I had a deadline coming up, but she had no one to play with except me, and i didn’t want to disappoint her.
So, i decided to made her several boats and a hat, but she refused, all that she asked was i taught her how to make them. It sure going to take a little longer time, but again, she had her way to melt a father heart (and made her father ignoring upcoming deadline.)
After all that was finish, we played the pirate, i am the pirate and she still held her role, as pirate’s daughter. And guess what, even a quiet man can do sword dance if his little daughter requested him.

A simple request from a daughter and a simple moment on a simple day of a father have delivered, i still had enough time to meet the deadline and even made this picture. I watch her as she sleeps,  a smile, a beautiful smile on her lips complete my perfect evening.

A Little Bit Of This And That

“Amore” by Alf Sukatmo. Vector artwork. 2014

It felt like a long time, i never touched my computer again since the doctor told me to take a long bed rest. After six months living in a dull and boring life, i think a little colors would be nice.
So, i turned my computer on, started Adobe Illustrator, and started drawing lines. I have a lot of distraction tough, sometimes i turned my head from the computer, and watched Brasil had difficulty to win their game, even they were not in their best performance so far, the boys of yellow jersey still had their luck.
Anyway, being away from digital painting software for a long time made me work like a beginner, it took four hours to finished this.., if i am drawing this for a client, i surely get fired.

…So friends, what do you think of my new digital artwork?
