O, RICE! A POET REPORTS FROM BALI

ACEP APRILYANA, A YOUNG SUNDANESE POET FROM JAVA, IS WORKING IN BALI.

HE LEARNED TO GROW RICE FROM HIS GRANDFATHER.

MY  POETRY  FARMERS

Acep Aprilyana

It’s not a beautiful poem.

It’s a poem standing guard.

When the earth is raped, my ink sweats,

Sunburning my paper jet.

I do not know the poetry of flowers

For here, the soil is

decorated with a dream

and unable to speak.

O  rice ..

Please give my kind compliments to the country’s leaders

Arriving into the mouth of the gate

They are good at talking.

O fruit ..
