Understanding the space between everything. Cinemafreak. Naturalist wannabe. Hail orientalism.

A narrative is a hyperbole of author’s life.

Ada dua jenis hal-hal. Hal pertama adalah hal yang terbiasa dengannya tapi tidak begitu suka. Hal kedua adalah hal yang jarang, bahkan tidak pernah ditemui, tapi dipuja-puja. Penyebab masing-masingnya ada di anak kalimat terakhir. Begitulah caranya melihat dunia.

Misalnya; Ada jejermanan, ada pepersiaan. Ada Shakhrukh Khan, ada Aamir Khan. Ada film musikal, ada neo-realisme. Ada Pak Johan Sapri, ada Pak Elben Yacoub. Ada kerja, ada kejar es-dua. Ada hidup sejahtera di kota, ada hidup sederhana di desa.

Selama ini cenderung memilih yang pertama, jadi sekarang bosan. Tapi untuk memilih yang kedua, terlalu takut.

Katanya dewasa itu dimulai dengan memilih yang kedua.

  • Celine: Reading something and knowing that the character in the story's based on you. It's both flattering and disturbing at the same time.
  • Jesse: Yeah, how is it distrubing?
  • Celine: I don't know. Just being part of someone else's memory. Seeing myself through your eyes.

I become attached to people I shouldn’t. I distance myself from the people who matter. I am bad with people. I am good at being alone. But I hate being lonely.

Understanding Poetry

Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I’ll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  ”imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”

Love came,
and became like blood in my body.
It rushed through my veins and
encircled my heart.
Everywhere I looked,
I saw one thing.
Love’s name written
on my limbs,
on my left palm,
on my forehead,
on the back of my neck,
on my right big toe…
Oh, my friend,
all that you see of me
is just a shell,
and the rest belongs to love.
