Menuju Rumah Ruh





Ruh, ingatkah di jalan ini
kita mengayun langkah menuju rumahmu?
Dituntun pendar bintang utara
pada sejumput langit di atas kepala kita
"Kau akan lihat lebih banyak lagi cahaya itu
ketika kita sampai di beranda dan tengadah."
Kau sulut lentera. Di balik pundakmu aku berkata : 
"Ayolah."

Lalu gerimis turun, Ruh, terpelanting di trotoar batu
Musim merangkak beku. Tulang-tulangku gigil membiru
"Kita harus terus maju," bisikmu
Kau cerita di rumahmu ada kursi goyang
kue jahe hangat di atas loyang
dan gulir tasbih yang berlanjut
biar malam membuta mengabut

Ruh, di jalan yang kita susuri
ribuan rumah jadi rumahmu
mengepul asap pendiangan yang kita nyalakan
semalaman itu.

I love reading Unwind. It might be the most thrilling dystopian fiction I have read since The Hunger Games, and it sets the bar higher eversince. The premise of Unwind is highly unlikely : Abortion is forbidden, but there is an option ...
