Penduduk Mars yg datang ke dunia~

Assalamu'alaikum w.b.t..
How do you do? hope everything is going well.

Tadi, kelas POETRY, sy ada belajar satu poem ni, yang sebelum ni sy pernah search pasal poem tu,tapi sy tak paham apa sebenarnya maksud poem ni..apa poet ni cuba nak sampaikan sebenarnya?..Bila sama2 baca dan dengar terangan Dr. Mahmud, barulah sy faham dan amatlah kagum dgn Craig Raine yakni poet of this poem.. Incredible! Hebat sungguh! 

This is the first poem that make me fall in love with it..
Sebelum ni xpernah baca poem sehebat ni!
Kalau baca saja memang tak paham,tp bila dah blajar dgn Dr. Mahmud tadi, mashaa Allah...best!! 
Meh kita baca sesama~~

A Martian Sends A Postcard Home

Caxtons are mechanical birds with many wings
and some are treasured for their markings --

they cause the eyes to melt
or the body to shriek without pain.

I have never seen one fly, but
sometimes they perch on the hand.

Mist is when the sky is tired of flight
and rests its soft machine on ground:

then the world is dim and bookish
like engravings under tissue paper.

Rain is when the earth is television.
It has the property of making colours darker.

Model T is a room with the lock inside --
a key is turned to free the world

for movement, so quick there is a film
to watch for anything missed.

But time is tied to the wrist
or kept in a box, ticking with impatience.

In homes, a haunted apparatus sleeps,
that snores when you pick it up.

If the ghost cries, they carry it
to their lips and soothe it to sleep

with sounds. And yet they wake it up
deliberately, by tickling with a finger.

Only the young are allowed to suffer
openly. Adults go to a punishment room

with water but nothing to eat.
They lock the door and suffer the noises

alone. No one is exempt
and everyone's pain has a different smell.

At night when all the colours die,
they hide in pairs

and read about themselves --
in colour, with their eyelids shut.
Craig Raine
