New Aceh Sunlight

Poem By Prasetya Utama

Aceh sun
sunshine burn my husk
is brittle
from open plane door
high wind, dry befall the face
homesick of native land
I walk among they
parrying homesick by myself
new leave taking the children
and wife
but I hold up because wishing to tread
at land; ground cleft newly
trying to trace the face
on the chance of newly
peace from endless conflict
your humanity
of the same nation

Hungry For Cigarettes Only

Early Saturday morning,
We went to the water roundabout
we have been waited by the car.
We walked straight passed the palace

Catch The Shadow

I crawl through the back door
Catch the shadows
Wake up from my depression to hear the gamelan sounds
Flute, drum, ending,


at home there are grandparents
age is aging
95 years
every day

My Grandfather

The grandfather liked to watch the broadcast football
In the TV channel every night
In the morning he still sleep
When I departed for work


I stand on the railway balustrades
To my hometown
I saw the railwaytrack move quickly
farther and farther from me
