Urine and HIV

Is it possible to get HIV through urine? I understand the HIV virus load is very rare in urine but is it still possible to get infected?

I have touched a drop of urine with my glans carelessly.

Despite the HIV virus load in urine is very low, I still worry about it could be infected through my glans and urethra.

Thanks
