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.
