This is Just to Say

I have eaten
the pistachios
that were in
the cabinet

and which
you were probably
saving
for quarantine snacks

Forgive met
they were satisfying
so crunchy
and so salty

Another not to William Carlos Williams!

This is Just to Say

 

I have used
the toilet paper
that was in
the bathroom

and which
you were probably
saving
for lockdown

Forgive me
it was necessary
so soft
and so clean

This is a nod to William Carlos Williams and his poem called “This is Just to Say.” You may know it as the plum poem.

This is Just to Say

 

 

I have read

the book

that parodies

Wiliam Carlos Williams

 

 

and that

should probably

be returned

to the library

 

 

Forgive me

It is so hilarious

and it is staying

on my bookshelf.
