you are so much younger now

by amy sharp


I gave advice to a younger woman the other night
buzzed on red wine I told her how love is
all of it
the good and the very ugly
mixed together like a swirl
how there is just so much of it 
I told her to get ready
I just told her stuff
like it was coming out of my mouth like a train
like love comes
fast and hard
and you better 
look
out
because 
it can 
smash you
