This is Not Just to Say

This is Not Just to Say

Okay. I ate the damned
plums. But it’s not my

fault you left them
sitting there on the top

shelf, so sweet, so cold,
enticing me, as only

you, or perhaps a ripe
peach, or strawberries,

or Asian pears or even
pomegranates, can do.

Besides, you need
something substantial

for breakfast. How about
donuts, or bacon, instead?

My apologies to WCW, but I couldn’t resist. You can find the original Williams poem here. The poem first appeared here in September 2015.

  2. My wife and I had a discussion yesterday about a cutting remark I had made. I apologized, we bonded and switched the topic. A few minutes later I got up, but before I left I said, “I forgive you.” She began to pound on my back (playfully), and I said, “So this is how domestic violence starts.”
