kuala lumpur


KL tak pernah tidur walaupun sudah terlalu uzur.
KL tak pernah diam walaupun lampu telah dipadam.
KL tak pernah sunyi walaupun sesaat sampailah ke pagi.
KL tetap macam ini selagi ada orang mencari rezeki untuk sesuap nasi....



shaded clumps on every road
the mamak calls.

distant farts of motorcycles
fuel and garbage;
rude stenches, accentuated by
midnight cigarettes

orange and black
alternate streetlamps that never see light

empty buildings behind
flamboyant roads
scattered markets; no one is home

and K.L never sleeps.
