[Iljas Hussein's 'Madilog' (1943)]

Isn’t this is how it always begins...?
With a believe ︎ belief?

“... Seorang tukang tak akan bisa bikin gedung
Kalau alatnya seperti cement
Baik dalam polomy,
perang pena, baik dalam propaganda...”

Death_we_meet_again



in death we meet again
  in death we meet again
  we confront
  in death we unite

  unite... in death we meet again

2. a high flute whistling just for the moon
   that is from the east
   a region far from here, far from here, far from here

1. we return to confront
  in the dead silence
  across the valley of death
  your lips whispers again

3 if my dear refuses
  to be present
  angels will descend
  with glittery wings –
  my body it surrender here

3. stay for I willl return
   when evening comes
   in the evening wind I depart to a state;
   where the fog does not blind me to a state;
   where the fog does not blind me










4在死亡后又相遇
在死亡后又遇见你

在死亡后我们成为一
体 在死亡后我遇见你

远方的笛子在轻轻地吹
为了
月亮在轻轻地吹
在遥远地
遥远地 东方

再次回到了
过去的那种僻静
死亡的山谷里我听见你
的声音 悄悄地说

如果情爱
再不出现
天使会
从天而降
带着光辉
的翅膀
将我的身体献上

请你留下来 在黄昏
的时候 我会回来
旁晚 我会随风而去 到一
个浓雾消散的状态 到一
个浓雾消散的状态
