                                          sajak Patung Penari
                                                                     Arie MP Tamba

                                                    Lalu kau bertanya
                                                    tentang lentik jemari
                                                                             melecut angin
                                                                             Kisah senja berdarah
                                                    tersingkap
                                                                           gelombang rambut
                                                                           di balik kain hitam
                                                    Hingga tubuh menggigil
                                                    terkenang kemarin
                                                    rindukan kau
                                                    Bersama mimpi tengadah
                                                                                  menyusu
                                                                                  buah dada bintang purba
                                                    Di antara
                                                    kedua telapak
                                                    gelas terjatuh
                                                                     menjelma kemuraman
                                                                     patung
                                                                           dibasah hujan
                                                    Seseorang melangkah lentur
                                                    di celah luka
                                                                       dan debar fana
                                                    Maka
                                                    menarilah menghentak perlambang
                                                    pada setiap langkah
                                                    cahaya berkibaran
                                                    Maka menarilah
                                                    membangunkan esok
                                                    berupa degup
                                                    samudera
                                                    pagi merah
                                                    Hingga ruang dan waktu
                                                    menjelma
                                                                                            segurat impian
                                                    Dan patung penari
                                                    membiarkan tubuh
                                                                                             beringsut
                                                                                             dari batu berlumut
                                                    Tangisan menepi hampa
                                                    kisah kepergian
                                                                                           menghampar tiba
                                                    Kupu-kupu bersayap
                                                                                         gelap
                                                                              membentur lengan
                                                    hinggap di tangan
                                                    penari
                                                                         melanda bosan
                                                    Hingga kemurkaan
                                                    teriris
                                                    alis sendiri

                                             Di antara
                                             bulan berlompatan
                                                                          menjumlah
                                                                                       perih
                                             di halaman
                                             Bersama musik
                                             menyuruk gelap
                                                                            mengulangi tarian gagal
                                             Ketika para penari
                                             memandang luka
                                             membatu
                                                                           di dada
                                             kehilangan tutur
                                                      malam keseribu
                                             Bahwa kelahiran
                                             menautkan sunyi
                                             pada bibir penari
                                             hingga tarian
                                                               mendamba lentur
                                                                                  sia-sia
                                             biar menyetubuhi
                                             gerak sendiri
                                             dalam gulungan
                                             selendang
                                                                      menderu lunak
                                                                      Ketika terjamah
                                             patung penari
                                             menahan gigil
                                                                     Menatap
                                                                     mimpi-mimpi
                                              berguguran
                                                                     di jemari sendiri
