  1. “Pemandangan Senjakala” karya W.S Rendra

senja yang basah meredakan hutan yang terbakar                                                                                  kelelawar-kelewar raksasa datang dari langit kelabu tua.                                                                                 Bau mesiu di udara. Bau mayat. Bau kotoran kuda.                                                                            Sekelompok anjing liar                                                                                                                                  memakan beratusribu rubuh manusia                                                                                                                yang mati dan setengah mati.

Dan di antara kayu-kayu hutan yang hangus                                                                                             genangan darah menjadi satu danau.                                                                                                                  Luas dan tenang. Agak jingga merahnya.                                                                                                            Dua puluh malaekat turun dari sorga                                                                                                      mensucikan yang sedang sekarat                                                                                                                           tapi di bumi mereka disergap kelelawar-kelelawar raksasa                                                                                yang lalu memperkosa mereka.                                                                                                                           Angin yang sejuk bertiup sepoi-sepoi basah                                                                                       menggerakkan rambut mayat-mayat                                                                                                            membuat lingkaran-lingkaran di permukaan danau darah                                                                              dan menggairahkan syahwat para malaekat dan kelelawar.                                                                              Ya, saudara-saudaraku,                                                                                                                                             aku tahun inilah pemandangan yang memuaskan hatimu                                                                            kerna begitu asyik kau menciptakannya.

  1. Perahu kertas” karya Sapardi Djoko Damono

Waktu masih kanak-kanak kau membuat perahu kertas dan kau                                                           layarkan di tepi kali; alirnya sangat tenang, dan perahumu                                                                bergoyang menuju lautan.                                                                                                                                         “Ia akan singgah di bandar-bandar besar,” kata seorang lelaki tua.                                                              Kau sangat gembira, pulang dengan berbagai gambar                                                                                        warna-warni di kepala. Sejak itu kau pun menunggu kalau-                                                                          kalau ada kabar dari perahu yang tak pernah lepas dari rindu-                                                                        mu itu.                                                                                                                                                                   Akhirnya kau dengar juga pesan si tua itu, Nuh, katanya,                                                                                “Telah kupergunakan perahumu itu dalam sebuah banjir besar                                                                     dan kini terdampar di sebuah bukit.”
