Here is a small sampling from this book.

Drinking, gambling, lying, bribery,
and all kinds of whoring too
all of them perfectly okay.
And to hog it all's not taboo.

All sins of course; but nothing really
a trip to the Holy of Holies
cannot fix for eternity


Next, is a blurb from the front cover of the book.

"The appearance of Salleh's book... was the most traumatic experience for the Malay literary scene." - Prof. Muhammad Hj. Salleh

I don't really read a lot of poetry but I just had to read this book. It

Salleh Ben Joned is a rebellious poet. His poems are incredibly powerful. He's the Johnny Rotten of poetry in Malaysia.

I didn't know what to think about Salleh at first. I knew of him, he has a reputation of being a wild card. But I didn't know his work so I had a knee-jerk reaction at first, didn't warm up to the vulgarities and profanities. I wasn't used to seeing local issues in such a stark way before. that's the thing about Salleh, to enjoy his work, you have to have patience and an open mind. he's not here to entertain or win hearts. His poems are hilarious, sarcastic, daring, intimate and anything but ...more

Mood tidak menentu memang ubatnya buku sebegini. Secara logiknya puisi atau sajak atau poems atau apa sahaja definisinya selalunya membantu. Dua tiga hari. Baca berhenti. Telangkup atas katil. Malas menanda akhir bacaan. Esoknya sambung lagi. Sambung lagi. Sehingga penghabisan. Ada yang faham. Ada yang tidak. Ada yang malas nak faham (rujuk mood di awal tadi). Yang boleh diingat. Tentang serangga pemakan bahan bacaan. Sajak buat anak perempuan. Dan sudah semestinya Sonnet Shakespeare yang ...more

Mendapat "pengalaman paling traumatik" (meminjam kata-kata SN Muhammad Hj. Salleh) semasa melewati sajak-sajak SBJ dalam buku ini.

Sekadar memetik beberapa cebisan sajak (yang buat aku trauma);

"Hubby keeps bobbing
between her and Bobby.
She hisses to dear dummy:
'Get lost you boring babi!'"

"Hantu dan aku
berkhalwat,
masuk kelambu
mengenal kebogelan."

"Bermulalah adventure seorang Alice,
Wonderland wallahualamnya very nice;
cencaluk belacan dan ikan bilis
bersama durian merai si gadis."

"Bladi bastat!"

Asalnya memilih Saleh utk pembentangan kelas.
Tidak tersangka pula boleh terpaut pada hasil keras tulisannya yang ternyata garang dan tersendiri.

Malaysia perlu penulis seperti ini.
Yang menulis dalam kedua-dua bahasa.
Menongkah arus kelainan tapi dipenuhi dengan kata kata terisi dan terdalam buat kita semua yang berenang di Tanah Melayu ini.

Malaysia needs more poets like these. Fevered and fervent. Salleh makes words and images sing, not in the Bianca Castafiore way, but in the clarity of an orchestra of crickets in the velvet dark of a forest kind of way.

His poems are like stories that project colourful pictures into the mind. "Sacred and Profane" says it all, I think. Heartfelt, double-edged and wildly memorable.
