CUTE, SWEET, & TASTY!

Two o’clock in the afternoon, sunny but gloomy. My lecture of creative writing class asked the students to go out and grab some lunch or brunch. “Yes!!”, I said aloud. “I wanna eat “cilok”, a ball of starch which is chewy with added spices like peanut sauce, ketchup and spicy sauces”, I talked to my friend spontaneously. “Cilok” roundly shaped like a meatball, but has different base ingredients. There are eggs or minced meat in it; because it is made from the starch as the base material “cilok” has chewy taste.
My friend and I decided to go to PUJALE (Pusat Jajanan Lembah) Universitas Gadjah Mada, a place with many food and beverage sellers. We went downstairs from the third floor, pass the Psychology Faculty, and take a shortcut to PUJALE through Philosophy Faculty of Universitas Gadjah Mada.
In addition to the faculty of philosophy is a shortcut, another reason why we chose the path was the atmosphere. Through the faculty of philosophy, the gentle breeze hit our faces which were g…

SAJAK CINTA – W. S. Rendra

Kutulis surat ini
kala hujan gerimis bagai bunyi tambur yang gaib,
Dan angin mendesah
mengeluh dan mendesah,
Wahai, dik Narti,
aku cinta kepadamu !

Kutulis surat ini
kala langit menangis
dan dua ekor belibis
bercintaan dalam kolam
bagai dua anak nakal
jenaka dan manis
mengibaskan ekor
serta menggetarkan bulu-bulunya,
Wahai, dik Narti,
kupinang kau menjadi istriku !

Kaki-kaki hujan yang runcing
menyentuhkan ujungnya di bumi,
Kaki-kaki cinta yang tegas
bagai logam berat gemerlapan
menempuh ke muka
dan tak kan kunjung diundurkan.

Selusin malaikat
telah turun
di kala hujan gerimis
Di muka kaca jendela
mereka berkaca dan mencuci rambutnya
untuk ke pesta.


Wahai, dik Narti
dengan pakaian pengantin yang anggun
bunga-bunga serta keris keramat
aku ingin membimbingmu ke altar
untuk dikawinkan
Aku melamarmu,
Kau tahu dari dulu :
tiada lebih buruk
dan tiada lebih baik
dari yang lain ……
penyair dari kehidupan sehari-hari,
orang yang bermula dari kata
kata yang bermula dari
kehidupan, pikir dan rasa.

Semangat kehidupan yang kuat
bagai berjut…

BLACK HOLE

by She & Him
My eyes are so bleary
I guess I'm young
But I feel so weary

I've tried to express it
But I think it's all a bore
It's at the heart of me
A very part of me

Reff:
Speak slowly, I can't hear you
My mind keeps spinning closer and closer
To the rain on the roof
And the rain in my head
And the things that you said
Keep on taking further ahead

And it just gets so foggy
It's nowhere in here
And it's everywhere else
That I don't want to be

But I'm stuck here
Getting misty over you
I'm alone on a bicycle for two
