Day 321, to Jack

Your brown butter
The same sweet
Thing I've always
Loved only More

This extra zest gives
Your sweetness a nutty flavor
My palette isn't accustomed to
And honestly I'm not sure
If I like it

But watching all of
Your goldeness mature
Cook fantastically
And become this other thing
This further thing

I think you might
Be too sophisticated for me
All I know is that I never knew
Couldn't know what time
Would do, I had no clue
This other you, thi brown butter you
Would be my favorite flavor in the world
If and when I quit refusing to taste it
