Poetry Breakfast #14 (Guest poet!) – This Is Just To Say

[Editor’s note – This was left as a comment on the first poem. I had not read the original, so after a bit of hunting, I found the reference. Excellent work. I’m happy to have guest poets involved in this, just email me with your ideas and work.]

This is just to say
(by Edward Aten – awe inspiring)

I have eaten
the bacon
that was in
the refrigerator

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
it was delicious
so salty
and so fatty

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
