He said to her

He said to her

He said to her:
I wish I was younger …
She said to him:
I’ll grow at night like the scent of
a Jasmine in the summer
Then she added:
and you’ll get younger when you sleep,
as all sleepers are young,
and I’ll stay up until morning
to get dark lines under my eyes.
Two lines from fatigue staged nicely,
are sufficient for me to look older.
I’ll squeeze a lemon over my belly
to hide the taste of milk and the smell of cotton.
Rub my breasts with salt and ginger,
so they repel more/
He said to her:
Oh girl, there is no place in the heart for the garden …
No time in my body for tomorrow …
So, grow up quietly and slowly
She said to him:
No advice in love.
Take me so I get older
Take me so you get younger
He said to her:
When you grow up tomorrow,
you’ll say: I wish I was younger
She said to him:
My desire is like a ripe fruit,
can’t be postponed…
No time in my body to wait for tomorrow!
