brown skin

i wonder if the brown of your skin

tastes like honey when it slides

off the honeycomb and into eager mouths

if it explodes with candied sweetness

subtle and shocking at the same time.

does your kind of brown

wear itself out with its beauty?

or does it just stay pretty

effortlessly?
