Coffee Flavored KissesPagi hari menatah malam tadi dalam imaji yang tereduksi: hujan, 5 pitcher Heineken, lagu-lagu Mariah Carey, asap, kotak-kotak kosong Dunhill dan Marlboro Lights Menthol, antrian panjang di depan toilet yang cuma satu-satunya, pecahan gelas yang berantakan.

[Selamat pagi…]

Aroma yang kukenal baik. Kopi tubruk. Susu cair. Dan kamu.

Do you realize that you have this lovely peppermint smell I’m totally crazy about? So refreshing! What was that? An after-shave cream? A toothpaste?

Kamu menjengukkan kepala dari balik jendela; terang membuat pucuk kepalamu bercahaya, seperti malaikat. Ada mug besar berwarna hijau muda dalam genggamanmu. Kafein bercampur Chambord dan Baileys. Memabukkan hanya karena kamu yang menyajikannya untukku. Tetapi bukankah tiap kehadiranmu itu memang selalu memabukkan?

Kamu tersenyum. Mengapa kamu tersenyum? Did I say that out loud?

[Have your coffee first before it gets cold.]

Semuanya terasa hangat. Matahari. Senyum. Kopi. Pagi. Telapak tangan. Hati. Coffee-flavored kisses. Juga bingkisan kecil di atas meja: an all-access ticket to do whatever I want with you (and your heart). I couldn’t ask for more.

Do it because it’s fun. Because it brings you joy; because it’s meaningful to you. Do it because it gives you simple tiny pleasures. Do it because it makes you smile.
The view from De Klok
I took another digital detox this weekend—I limited myself to a 5-minute screen time on Saturday and Sunday to quickly check my business account. I closed my social media account for the rest of the days.

Hi. I'm HANNY
I am an Indonesian writer/artist/illustrator and stationery web shop owner (Cafe Analog) based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I love facilitating writing/creative workshops and retreats, especially when they are tied to self-exploration and self-expression. In Indonesian, 'beradadisini' means being here. So, here I am, documenting life—one word at a time.
