A Cup

The air of drunkenness is floating in the dusk;
Come and drown all your sorrows in a cup.
What matters if you are a chishti malang or an amir –
At home, there is no difference between master and slave.
Death’s hand, the black hunter, is weighing well the blow;
Laugh! Laugh now, before laughter is ensnared.


Translated from Pashto by Taimur Khan
