Oasis - Poem by Max Reif

A cup of chai,
An outdoor table
Sheltered from
The rain,

Brief refuge
From procession
In the endless
Human caravan.

I sit and sip.
My ancient eyes
Begin to rise.

One needs to sip
Existence now and then:
Tomorrow I'll strap on
My burden and resume
My place in the parade.
