Perihal Cantik

Perihal Cantik

Penulis : Nunuk Parwati Songki

Masalahku dengan apa yang mereka sebut “cantik”
Adalah konsep mereka tentang kecantikan
Berpusar sempit dan penuh pengecualian
Buatku rambut ikal itu indah
Ketika seorang perempuan menganggapnya seperti kebun pada kulitnya
Itulah definisi kecantikan
Hidung pesek kecil atau besar
Tunduk gagah ke tanah
Seolah ia tanaman padi
Pesta dansa
Kulit sewarna tanah
Tempat leluhurku menanam benih
Untuk menafkahi serumpun manusia
Dengan paha setebal batang pohon
Mata serupa biji sirsak
Dalam selimut tebal ku yakinkan diri
Sungai mengalir pada darahku
Maka jangan bilang saudara-saudaraku tak secantik mereka
Yang lahir
di negaramu
Di daerahmu
Atau di tempat tinggalmu

Selamat tanggal 8 Maret 2022 untuk kita semua

  1. obviously like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.

  2. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
