Wild Life


image

Corn stalks thrive in land without Lord
from seeds that were dispatched by wild birds
out of nowhere,
maybe from hillside farmer’s old fields

here, there is only silence
life almost collapsed
memories chipped off from weathered shack’s wooden wall

I was memory
that won’t be remembered anymore

the old house is moaning
not by the sting of blistering or changing storm
but by cold of loneliness
Biting

Roots of grass are creeping
through the edges of cracked wall
cornstalks creating fences in the middle of shrubs
even without soul,
life still continues to flourish
although wild

Kehidupan Liar

Batang jagung tumbuh subur di tanah tanpa tuan
dari biji yang disebar burung liar
entah dari mana,
dari ladang tua petani bukit mungkin

disini yang ada hanyalah kesunyian
kehidupan yang nyaris runtuh
ingatan terkelupas bersama dinding kayu gubuk lapuk

aku adalah kenangan
yang tak diingat lagi

rumah tua merintih
bukan oleh sengat terik atau badai yang berganti
tapi oleh dingin sepi
yang menggigit

akar-akar rumput merambat
tepi-tepi dinding retak
batang-batang jagung mencipta pagar tengah belukar
tanpa jiwa pun,
kehidupan tetap tumbuh mekar
meski liar
