    Song: "Sugar In My Bowl" Nina Simone


    For The Sweet Woman Even Her Foes Had To Call Sugar.

    Sugar.
    Placed just out of reach
    Stretch for her
    Fingertips dances on her belly to pull her closer.
    She taunts me
    Tease me
    Call me close
    and whisper.
    Taste.
    Savor.
    Love.

    Sweetly Simply Complex and Refined.
    Dangerous and Exotic.
    She takes me places warm tropical
    Without leaving my kitchen comfort.
    Raw brown in the summer heat
    She rest soft on my lips
    long after she left me
    with my eyes closed.
    Taste.
    Savor.
    Love.

    Woke me early.
    Good morning love.
    She comes with Brazil
    and New Orleans
    Takes the bite from my coffee
    Giving the pillowy powder delight to my beignets
    Waiting for me to bite…
    Powder clings close
    To lips…and chin…
    Tongue touches Sugar
    Taste.
    Savor.
    Love.

    She has always loved me
    And I her.
    She came through when I double dutched
    Kept the aid kool
    Played in the grass at grandma's
    She gave me honey dipped days
    Was my first kiss
    My first taste of sweetness
    Crept into my summer syrupy soaked nights
    We, sticky…yummy…close thick wet.
    Hmmmm.
    Taste.
    Savor.
    Love.

    I wanted too much.
    Got greedy.
    Wanted my sweet n low lover all the time.
    Dangerous.
    Addicting.
    Step back.
    Stand away.
    She still reaches for me.
    I try to stand just out of reach.
    Her fingertips stretch
    Reaching me
    I hurt
    She stays. Pure.
    My tears melt in her.
    She stays. Still.
    Always there.
    Still.
    Taste.
    Savor.
    Love.
