Love is not Cinta is not Liefde

Ask me not to write on love
Cause love is you, which I cannot name
unless as a heartbeat
– Sitok Srengenge

I’m going to say
that I love you
and feel unkissed kisses
– Rutger Kopland

(Both texts are translated by me. The first text is also translated by Nukila Amal, an Indonesian novelist. The photo was taken yesterday, on a walk between tropical showers from Paramadina University at Jalan Gatot Subroto, where I joined a conference, to Erasmushuis at Jalan Rasuna Said.)
