POETRY | Bracelets by Hajer Nasir

Artwork by Hajer Nasir She wore bracelets full of flowers Which to her they looked so pretty But no one sees what lies beneath The roses and the lilies Her hair was the summer glow of June While her eyes were both the stars and moon But albeit the things that she would show They would simply never know The nights that bat under her lash Stained her pillow with thorns and leaves She’d wrap them ’round her head and wrist; And these are the bracelets that you see. – Hjr “I’m a pessimistic idealist. I’m the kind of...

SHORT STORY | It’s Magic by Masami Mustaza

Image credit: ashscrapyard.wordpress.com Mother’s love had no bounds, which was pretty much how Richard Mogumbirak came to be the size that he was today. His vital statistics read as follows: – Height: 1.75 metres; – Weight: 138 kilos; – Waist size: 46 inches; resulting in a BMI of over 40, a belly that jiggled and spilt over the entire circumference of his belt and flabby thighs as big as a batang pokok pisang. And Richard had a non-existent chin. Or neck. It was hard to tell. It wasn’t so much of a paunch – if it was possible for a neck...

Cerpen | Bertemu Seniman di Hotel Bajet oleh Abdullah Hussaini Mohd Ghazali

Sejak iklannya diuar-uarkan di facebook saya sangat teruja. Saya telah menandakan ‘menghadiri’ pada RSVP acara program yang dianjurkan seorang seniman muda yang meningkat naik namanya kini. Saya memang minat giler dengan dia. Mulanya saya terjumpa filem pendek bikinannya di Youtube dan sejak itu saya mula berminat dengan hasil kerjanya. Apabila dia mula membikin novel saya segera beli melalui pos. Walaupun saya punya keinginan untuk ke majlis pelancaran novelnya, bertentang mata dengannya, meminta autografnya dan mengatakan ‘filem pendek Cik Wan sangat brilliant’ tetapi hasrat itu terpaksa saya lupakan. Maklumlah saya duduk di kampung sangat jauh dengan Kolumpo tu. Novelnya meletupkan...

POETRY | Love someone that loves you too by Preetijit Chaal

Image credit: fireandwaterpodcast.com You, I promise you, it would hurt so bad now. Some mornings you can’t even open your eyes because it is so sore and tired from crying last night. Sometimes, you’ll lay on the bed, wide awake with a literal heartache. It’s okay, just breath gently and you’ll be fine. I promise you, it will go away. Eventually, all things come to an end and one day you’ll learn to live without him. You’ll learn to live without the firm hugs and warm kisses on your cheek. You’ll learn to live without the “I love you”s in...

Cerpen | Hadiah oleh Abdul Rahman Shah

  Gambar: “Cafe Terrace at Night” oleh Van Gogh Hirupnya secara perlahan kopi latte yang baru dihidangkan pada mejanya. Gadis muda awal 20an itu menutup matanya seolah sedang mengunjungi dimensi lain dalam menikmati pahit espresso yang diselimuti lemak manis susu. Berhenti dia seketika, “manis, terlalu manis” bisiknya bersendirian. Untuknya kopi itu hanya kopi jika ianya mengekalkan kepahitan mencengkam deria rasa yang selalunya dapat membangkitkan jiwa ketika masih tidur. Walaubagaimanapun dia tetap menikmati latte di hadapannya itu kerana susu yang digunakan kafe kecil ini segar dan sedap. Dalam lamunannya tadi, tidak disedari langit kian mendung, walaupun baru 11:30 pagi. Pengunjung...
