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 wrote that. Not me. William Carlos Williams. If I could write something like that, I’d be the world’s greatest poet, because that’s the world’s greatest poem. Thanks, MTA Poetry in Motion!
