Karena dibikin bilingual, ada yang tetap sukses dan hilang dari sajaknya Sitok.

Di seluruh ngarai tergerai rambut kabutmu
mengaburkan derai-derai derita di punggungku
pelukan dan ciuman, badai yang datang beruntun,
sayap-sayap mimpiku kuyup terbantun
ke ceruk pinggang cadasmu yang terjal berlumut
menjelma gaung di pokok-pokok rambut



Translated as:

Throughout the gorge spread your misty hair
blurring the patter of suffering on my back
embraces and kisses, the storm that strikes in a row
the wings of my dre

On Nothing dua bahasa Inggris Indonesia, para penerjemah. Nukila Amal dan Hasif Amini


Penyairnya saya kenal betul. Sitok Srengenge, seorang ayah dari penulis muda, Laire Siwi Mentari. Dalam kumpulan sajak itu akan terpuaskan eksplorasi kalimat yang jumawa. Maksudnya, Sitok sangat tangkap dalam memperlakukan bahasa secara lembut. Sajak cintanya begitu rupawan, salah satunya sajak "Menulis Cinta" merupakan paduan bahasa dan rima Indonesia yang cantik.

Kau minta aku menulis cinta, aku tak tahu huruf

mendapatkannya langsung dari si penulis
semakin membuat bertanya-tanya, bagaimana semua karya itu pada asal mulanya dibuat.

sangat suka dengan pemilihan kata-kata
memadukannya menjadi rima

yang bertema cinta... tak terkatakan :)
tema-tema lainnya layak disimak

ada hal-hal yang tidak bisa diungkapkan dengan kata,
pada buku ini semuanya terungkap dengan kata yang tidak biasa.

“Kauminta aku menulis cinta
Aku tak tahu huruf apa yang pertama dan seterusnya
Kubolak-balik seluruh abjad
Kata-kata yang cacat yang kudapat

Jangan lagi minta aku menulis cinta
Huruf-hurufku, kau tahu,
Bahkan tak cukup untuk namamu

Sebab cinta adalah kau, yang tak mampu kusebut
Kecuali dengan denyut”
