Youth

They say we are too young I

say youth is an expression we

wear on our sleeves, the body, the love, the

language of fire

the necessity of heat in the cold

that burns just as hot

youth is the flower that blooms on our

tongues, the growth of words and

sweetened fantasies that turn into fragrant

realities, so vivid is the sting of the

bee that tastes it.

They say we are too young so

I turn to them and ask what age is to them

the way it turns grapes to wine,

seedlings into trees

children into fighters.
