What Do You Call Me - Poem by Nur Meiyati
Dear brothers, sisters, poets and readers
You have read some parts of 'my' life story
From 'I Informed You, I am Pregnant'
Up to 'I'
How many “I' can you find in the world
Since the oldest until this modern civilization
From the western to eastern countries
From the northern to southern parts of the globe
From the Middle East to Russia
What is the term you have for 'me'
Another woman or a secret lover
A mistress, a harem or a concubine
A bitch or a whore
Do you see me as a retailer of sex
Or a woman who fell onto a sugar daddy
Or..can you feel 'our' love (or at least 'my' love)
Will you judge it as black versus white
Holy versus sinful
The deserved versus undeserved
Based on whatever – you call it - the divine laws
Can all be generalized
And should the legal laws effect to any -what you call- scandals?
Will you put all of 'you' and 'me” on a jail
For doing fornication
For ruining -what you called – the holiness and morality
For violating the system, the order, and the laws
Ah...shouldn't it need our contemplation?
