“Great books write themselves, only bad books have to be written”

Many writers, including A S Byatt, have said their books sort of wrote themselves, though if you go with F. Scott Fitzgerald’s assertion that “Great books write themselves, only bad books have to be written” then spirits have exclusively great taste.

The Crock

The moon shone above your creep

The sun brighten under your fear

What day will become the fortnight?

They say; it’s hard to know that

That’s… when your heart melted…

Away with your empty crock

Thus,

The sun and the moon,

will show you the way…

 

Poem – The Fractal Debris

The house buried under the sun,

the shimmer they hid couldn’t run,

for the age they held,

no more than a hesitancy.

If one could shallow a sinner thought,

the old cabin would allure,

for the smoke and ashes to sue.

The tantrum was lifting a tragedy,

of what they said about the wood;

a frantic horror and panic.

For what they had consumed,

they might remain the same.

The cabin wouldn’t look alive,

and the brown shade would suffice.

as if the fractal debris were there to swirl.

As the only living place in the wood,

oh, the agony to lose that place has raging,

only for them to survive,

from the wild roses.

Once the wolf echoed,

they should know their place.

[Review 2] The Salt Prejudice

Review for The Salt Prejudice on Natia’s Blog:

Saya bukan pencinta cerita fiksi, novel, ataupun puisi. Sampai Salah seorang teman baik menawarkan buku ini, sebagai teman baiknya saya menerima tawaran untuk membeli buku nya dengan alasan tidak ingin menyakiti hatinya. Berhari – hari buku itu saya selipkan di sela – sela rak buku, beberapa kali buku ini sempat menarik perhatian saya ketika ingin mengambil buku filsafat yang tak habis – habisnya baca. Kemudian disuatu malam entah kekuatan apa mendorong saya untuk meraih buku ini dan memaksa saya mulai membacanya, semakin dalam lembaran yang saya buka semakin saya terbuai. Mungkin ini namanya guilty plesure, semalaman saya menghabiskan lembar demi lembar buku ini. Saya rasa ini buku yang dapat membuat saya rela di buat jatuh cinta oleh kata demi kata yang di rangkai nya, mengingatkan saya kembali akan kehadiran rasa yang ada dalam hidup ini, tidak hanya hitam dan putih, tapi ada abu – abu. Mungkin saya terlalu jauh melupakan semua kepedihan hingga semua rasa saya anggap sebagai suka cita, namun buku ini dapat membantu saya mengingatkan kembali bahwa ada si sakit, si kesal , ada si pait, si marah, dan ada si bimbang. good job fe!!

A Prejudice of Conjugation

I

It was no more than a mere catastrophe that ached in my heart. Some says, going away to flutter with your deepest heart is a decision to take. But oh well—who knows of saying that mercy would skeptic our mind into a stranger on a long road tonight.

II

I clenched my fist hardly, I didn’t think it would hurt more than before, but what they said about some flyers—it might be true.

III

Some things can conjugate into thin air, it says well, I broke every rules, more than they know. Prejudice of my conjugation is a pain over the moon, but for some mountains for instance, that plays well.

In the end,

I pry well for the moon and mountain.
