       This poem is dedicated to my wife, and is based on the split second recollection of waiting in a train station to meet my in-laws for the first time. This was the moment Indonesia ceased being a location and became a state of mind.

    Aku cinta kamu, maliakat-ku!
    Apa kabar? And how are you, my angel?
    The heat has risen, dove-like, from the cracks
    The pavement radiates as each await
    Some measure of relief, and who can say
    A storm may wash away the gathered warmth
    And chill the bones and melt the crowd away.
    This sea of human faces round and dark
    Have never seen so pale a guest as me
    And I had never wandered round the earth
    To bathe in oceans, colorful and deep.
    As soft as palms and fragrant as the wind
    My thoughts pile up and scatter in the air
    And all my dreams beside me whirl and dance
    As easily as dark disheveled hair.
    This moment, sharp as sunlight at mid day
    Rising to my memory, remains
    As bright as any sun above the earth
    And purer than professions hollow aim.
    Salamat pagi, istri-ku. Iím well.

    I didnít intend to wander so far
    But these things happen, and so we remain
    Adrift on an ocean of good intentions
    Be careful, salt water rots the belly
    And wandering words may do the same.
