EPISODE HUJAN

Saya tidak pernah bertemu Socrates
dan muridnya Plato. Bahasa saya berbicara
Melalui kelopak-kelopak yang menari
dalam sebuah putik

Detak jantung saya adalah bunga yang tumbuh
seadanya. Merindukan hujan di tanah gersang
Mengelilingi jiwa, menyalakan mata saya

Mungkin saya tidak ada setiap waktu
Hanya jiwa saya. Mencarimu sepanjang jalan
Sampai di ujung-ujung jalan
Yang akan ditutup atau diledakkan

Di bawah hujan matamu, jalan-jalan berlari
Menyimpan ribuan pelangi di dalam dirimu
Saya mati. Saya mati setiap saat
menghirup nafas saya. Dunia imajiner
membangun kembali kota-kota yang terluka

Saya akan terus melukis kata-kata
Dengan tetesan hujan dari banyak warna
Meninggalkan jejak tanpa berjalan
Tak ada pagi, siang menjadi malam
Yang menakutkan
Memanjat seribu mimpi-mimpi

Langit adalah laut dimana mimpi-mimpimu
terbakar. Meleleh dalam kota-kota
yang hilang dalam dirimu. Suaramu memanjat
jiwa saya. Hanyut dalam gelombang
Ke tengah-tengah lautan
Menuju langit-langit hujan

Medan, Sumatera Utara, Indonesia, 2019
