Raw, adjective: 7. brutally or grossly frank: a raw portrayal of human passions

After all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
"You Owe Me."
Look at what happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.

~~ 12th c. Persian poet Hafiz, "The Sun Never Says"

(And that's Klimt again, detail from Sea Serpents II, c. 1907)
