It is always an either/or

By Ilhem Issaoui

It is always an either/or

It is always an either/or
An unresolved conundrum
And hence
As I am caught between the two
I have to minimally make use of my existence in this either
Or in this or
And for I know that all is fleeting
Even myself
And that my wardrobe can no longer hide me
I make use of the sun
Before the prying eyes manifest
Although I am in no way a penetrable cold
I am the rough! I am the rough!
And every bit of warmth I felt will go
As I enter my room
Where my cimmerian verity lies
Strange how species are bound together
Yet every human is a species on its own
