Mind and Condom


Tidied up my room
To go for a new
I found it
In my big bag

Looked at the date
Still it is valid for a few days
Two years passed
In the same pocket

At the registration
And blood testing place
I was given it
In the first refugee camp

Kept it in safe
Never I it wanted
Mind is imprisoned
Eyes are suffered

She is to come
From my home
To live with me
After punished time

I want to keep it
Not for use
To show her
To say her

But there are two
Binary assumptions
Because of it and
Because of time

Benefit of the doubt
May be to me or
May be to us
In my view or
In her view

If I not throw it away
Forgetting time space and difference
Possibility of something
Always on the edge
Looking for

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
