cultuurstelsel

after a great pooling/unspooling of energy, the room tried to contain xerxes, music in hyper slo-mo, no music but the afternoon light, propeller blades bouncing off each other. listen to intelligent, oversmart/obtuse, dance music. what do you do exactly when you reappropriate the ancients? after a great pooling/unspooling of energy, a hand gesture there, aContinue reading “cultuurstelsel”

classical rhetoric for the modern student

kelelahan cuma buat menunda waktu untuk mengakui kekalahan seperti payung dibentangkan untuk melindungi punggung yang terlanjur basah sosokmu melintasi kuburan di bawah awan yang menggerayang kesedihan père lachaise yang membusuk di petamburan tidak ada lagi jalan, hanya badan badan yang ditumpuk bagai bantal di ibukota yang enggan memberikan ruang bagi gunting rumput dan air mataContinue reading “classical rhetoric for the modern student”

maksi

jadi mau makan apa, rawon, mandala, memandangi lalu lintas saja sambil meremas bantalan kursi? rawon mandala would be great, tapi apakah dunia sudah seadvanced itu? aku sudah lama tidak memperhatikan apa-apa, begitu pula rambutmu. apakah catokan yang lagi panas-panasnya masih sering menjatuhi betismu? jadi mau makan apa, belok kanan aja. high tea tak pernah terasaContinue reading “maksi”

menulis kembali

danau itu masih memantul di lampu lampu, begitu juga panty linemu, masih nyeplak di benakku. kau tak menyentuh ayam popmu, karena tomatnya kelewat asin, dan percakapan ini tidak sampai ke intinya. sungguh sebuah malam yang seharusnya sederhana, yoga kemudian mengisi perut, namun rongga rongga di antara kita rasanya makin kosong. apakah kamu masih menyimpan sikatContinue reading “menulis kembali”

triptych

temanku pergi meninggalkan sampah. suatu sore di tepi toba, lampu jalanan miring ke tanah, membuatku lupa tentang indomie terlalu matang di lantai atas. jika makan bawal bakar, lebih baik putuskan tali bambu pengikatnya dulu, karena low self-esteem sering mengantarkan kita ke tepi pantai tanpa memakai sendal. misteri siluman harimau atau perawan cina binal, bukan tidakContinue reading “triptych”

safaristi

buat Edo droning, skipping, chk-chk-chk-ing, you klip-klop dawns and discos, notwithstanding calamus and pitiful dragons, brandishing swords and falujas, quizzing folks on brixton, idm and vaka. oozing black roses, you catapult pentatonic notes up to heaven, realizing just how much quizzing faiths sap your strength, how much quixotic flair it takes to swallow the moon.Continue reading “safaristi”

love*

for violeteye   reeling from 3-in-1 hours, we breezed through lunch, le thé everywhere we felt du jour, curing seeds of love in-between jugs of pilsener, resizing the deconstruction of this city’s dog-shit-dog zeitgeist, kitting ourselves in polyester knits, slightly ripped here and there. we devoured quiches out of boredom, veering close to vexed, droningContinue reading “love*”
