Poem by Prasetya Utama

at home there are grandparents
age is aging
95 years
every day
he asked at what
in charge grandchildren
8 am
asked at what time during the day
afternoon also
he woke up
sitting at the door
him on a stool
of plastic
wait time
leaving many
memories that have been ingested
age, the facial wrinkles
in the teeth of the date
the sigh breath
coming out of the cavity of the lungs
