    saya pernah mendengar puisi paul celan, , seperti mantra
    saya mendengarnya dari cd, , ya, , saya suka

Your Hand

Your hand full of hours, you came to me – and I said:
‘Your hair is not brown.’
You lifted it, lightly,
on to the balance of grief,
it was heavier than I.

They come to you on their ships, and make it their load,
then put it on sale in the markets of lust.
You smile at me from the deep.
