i still vaguely remember those good old days
family gatherings
dressed up in a sleeveless blouse, mini skirt, heels
and those quirky-look-alike-half-burned-cigarette-earrings
she sat on a chair, with a cig slipped on her fingers
i came towards her and said: "Oma, why are you smoking?"
she just laughed
today, if only she could get up from that coffin, she'd probably asked me the very same question, just to make us even

as i get older, i heard about her acceptance
and it touched me deeply

today, i just realized that she's always been one of my role model, and i simply adore her

Goodbye Oma Ade
'till we meet again :")

pagi sendu

Halo, selamat pagi.
Hari ini dimulai sendu sekali.
Hujan rintik membasahi.
Dan sama seperti Rain yang dalam "Smoking With God" ingin mengajakMu merokok di balkon lantai dua, aku pun mau.
Seharian bersama bicara berdua, atau saling diam, cukup mensyukuri kehadiran masing-masing, di balkon lantai dua, dengan sebuah jendela yang selalu terbuka, tempat asap kita bermuara.
Halo, mungkin aku rindu, rindu terlalu, hingga terlarut dalam haru.

*Sedikit banyak juga terinspirasi dari karya Rain Chudori - "Smoking With God"
