SAJAK: Pejalanan Meninggalkan Jakarta pakai Taksama Pagi

Sepanjang keluar dari Jakarta sumpek-sumpek rumah di pinggir rel
Realitas sudah menjadikan lingkungkan tak lebih dari sebuah sel
Kemiskinan bekerja sebagai sipir yang menjaga ketat
Kereta api lewat menuju tempat yang lebih indah, hati hanya tambah kesumat.

  1. hati hanya tambah kesumat.
    I like the poem having had the same thoughts riding Gajayana between Jogja and Malang, but I am unsure of the meaning of the last phrase. The weasle word ‘hati’.
    ‘The heart only increases revenge’ Way off target!
    What about:
    ‘Sympathy just feeds resentment.’ That works in the way I respond to the poem.
    When you have the time I’m sure I’m not the only one who would be interested in your thoughts on writing In Indonesian and translating your own work.
