Love from raw brown sugar.

The raw of sugar,
brown and sweet molassic lava,
flows behind my lips
and down my throat.

Not refined,
its grit reminds me
of your presence.

Sweet and raw,
your honeyed lips
and moneyed breath,
your sweet-brown eyes
and sweet-grass hair,
stir my caffeinated heart,
provide my soul with

My hunger growls.
My smile greets
my Turbinado.
