“And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows)
you will be content that you have known me.
You will always be my friend.
You will want to laugh with me.
And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure . . .
And your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them,
‘Yes, the stars always make me laugh!’
And they will think you are crazy.
It will be a very shabby trick that I shall have played on you…”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince


getir yang kau rasa, bukan getir yang kupikir
lara yang kupikir, bukan lara yang kau rasa
apa yang kau rasa, bukan apa yang kupikir
rasanya tak akan pernah kita bersepakat untuk ini

dan kita,
-seperti daun yang jatuh pada musim gugur
indah sekaligus murung,
seperti penyihir tua yang lupa pada mantranya
menggelikan sekaligus menakutkan-
tanpa pernah ada yang akan mengerti.

Sai Kung – HK (031113)
