Arrival

Jnanadeepan killed someone
when he arrived
when did he arrive?
Was it Germany? Or France?
Not sure. All he knows
is that he killed someone
when he arrived
 
He wanted kill
so he killed
Then,
then nothing. 
 
The victim was Tamil
was also a white man
He saw two figures 
 
He took them both 
to the police station 
seeking asylum 
 
“Sir! Time and time again, 
I have been tortured and displaced
my life was in danger and I endured such hardship
I know not how or where to begin…”
