Crumbling


what else do you want
from my exuviate body
plain,
naked,
like a hill that was climbed too often

have you ever thrust a needle?
to the cotton fibers
creating a warm blanket
to warm my shabby body
*

Remah Lelah

apalagi yang kau minta
dari tubuhku yang luruh
polos,
telanjang,
seperti bukit yang terlalu sering didaki

pernahkah kau menusukkan jarum?
ke serat-serat kapas
mencipta selimut penghangat
untuk tubuhku yang lusuh
*

Novia, 2014
