THE POSTMAN (SEORANG POSMEN) – MAHMOUD ABSI / Translated into  BAHASA MELAYU by  Siti Ruqaiyah HASHIM 

Poem by MAHMOUD ABSI

 

THE POSTMAN

Postman 
They found him off the cemetery
On the street of words comes his last breath
They found him near his bicycle
They found him dead in an old letter
They opened the message
They found his heart!?
They opened his heart with his nails
They found a woman!?

While the wheels of the bicycle rotate as water
Spin in place

 

SEORANG POSMEN

Mereka menjumpainya di tepi kuburan
Atas jalan raya kata-kata dia menghembuskan nafas terakhirnya

Mereka menemui beliau dekat basikalnya
Mereka menjumpainya mati dalam sepucuk surat lama
Mereka membuka surat itu
Adakah mereka menemui hatinya!?
Mereka membelah hatinya dengan kukunya
Adakah mereka menemui seorang perempuan!?

Sedangkan tayar basikalnya terus berputar seperti air
Berputar di tempatnya
