This is just to say… ~William Carlos Williams


I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

( LOL, at least he left a note...)

    • Honestly, I have no clue why this poem is famous. Maybe because of the simplicity, because it’s easy to memorize? Or is it because its so easy to relate to the experience of having some jerk of a friend or relative raid the fridge? Who knows.
