Honey CakebySander Roscoe Wolff©
Cream the sugar, smooth butter and brown
Cinnemon's scent, its earthy color,
Blends with dark coffee and honey
A whole cup, sticky and sweet,
Melting in the warmth.
Intoxicating rum, dark also, changes
Flour, two kinds, stirred gently into
The warm mixture.
Baking soda, Baking Powder
Make it rise in the oven.
Still warm, and cooling,
I ache for a taste.
