Fast Day 370 July 19 2014 Desert Memories: Aswan

Desert Memories: Aswan

The days when they are held
give their names to the markets -
the suqūq surrounding
at several oases around
this lake made by artifice.

Six napoleons was the price
of horses on that Monday;
sit among the palms,
smoke the censing shishas-
the life of our dream.

suqūq         markets

shishas      Egyptian hookah
