Sugar slips sweetly
Next to the old jar of salt
Which stings with tartness

I love the contrast here of sugar and salt! They're almost like homographs or homonyms, if you think about it, because they look pretty much identical, but they have two very different flavors :) It's a unique topic to write a poem about!! Great work!!! :D
