Joko Pinurbo began writing poetry during his late 20s even though he had been reading Indonesian poetry since he was young. When writing poetry, he often creates a mixture of reality and dreams, wisdom with comic elements, the arrogant and the pedestrian, that all can be found in one line and pronounced in one breathe.
His work has been published in various newspapers, magazines, journals, anthologies and books. His collected poems Celana (1999) and Di Bawah Kibaran Sarung was published in 2001. In 2001 he won Penghargaan Buku Puisi Terbaik Dewan Kesenian Jakarta, Hadiah Sastra Lontar, and Sih Award (Penghargaan Puisi Terbaik Jurnal Puisi). He was also selected as a literary figure in Tempo magazine. He often appears in discussions and poetry readings in various locations and forums such as the transnational Poetry Festival in Jakarta (2001), the Winternachten Literature Festival in the Netherlands (2002), and the International Poetry Festival in Solo (2002).
Some of Pinurbo's poems seem to be parodies of traditional Indonesian poetry. He was also fond of using imagery that seemed cliche and was rarely found in Indonesia, for example he uses objects commonly found everyday, such as bags, mobile phones, bathrooms, trousers in his work.
