I wrote this cherita terbalik for a Facebook poetry group challenge yesterday, but I made some minor changes before posting this illustrated version.
The radiator in the photo sits on the stairway wall between the first and second floor in my mansard-roofed building. I live on the top/third floor and when it is quiet in the apartment, I can hear the old radiator hissing.

there is something
comforting in the hissssss
of the cast iron radiator
winter for 147 years
and curves so lovely
