He Smells Like Mango

He smells like mango
The sweet scent of ripe mango
I try not to inhale him
Lest I’ll forget and lose myself
In his innocence.
But I can’t help but wonder:
Do his lips taste just as sweet?
Does his body feel just as firm?
He’s only eighteen
And though he’s ripe for the picking
To touch and taste him
Is forbidden.

***

Simbango siya ng mangga
Matamis na bango ng hinog na mangga
Iniiwasan kong malanghap siya
Dahil ayokong makalimot at mawala
Sa kawalang-malay niya.
Subalit hindi ko maiwasang mag-isip:
Ang mga labi niya kaya’y gano’n din katamis?
Ang kalamnan niya kaya’y gano’n din kasiksik?
Disiotso lang siya
At kahit hinog na upang pitasin
Ang hipuin siya’t lasapin
Ay mahigpit na ipinagkakait.
