Bude Kardjono Menabrak Motor

Darah biasanya menampak dalam bercak darah. Maka, ketika aku menatap genangan darah, di atas lantai miring retak-retak, di depan warung, dekat trotoar, lidah dan tenggorokanku meringis.

Di Gang Mampang I, Jakarta, dalam perjalanan pulang kantor, ada orang bergerombol. Kecelakaan, pikirku. Di pusat kerumunan, wanita rentah terduduk di lantai. Kedua kakinya terjulur. Di samping kaki kanannya, genangan darah.

Ia menoleh ke belakang; wajah kami saling menyapa. Di bawah neon putih susu, muka keriputnya kelihatan pucat. Raut yang aku kenal: Bude Kardjono!

Darah tumpah dari telapak kaki kanan yang robek. Kaki kirinya juga patah.

Bude Kardjono menabrak motor senja itu. Atau sebaliknya.
