my plums are better than yours


"This is Just to Say"

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

--William Carlos Williams

(I know what you were really thinking...)

(shame on you)

Damn right they're better than ours.

Can you teach me?
Or do you have to charge?

I don't really like plums. Now peaches, those are fruits.
