poem- This is just to say November 13, 2022

(with apologies to William Carlos Williams)


This is just to say

I have eaten
The last
of the tortilla chips

I know you
Were saving them
For a bedtime snack

But like you
they were salty
And so delicious.

How could I resist?

Mr. Williams,

What is so important

about that



Does cleaning out

the chicken coop

really warrant

such angst?



With vague apologies to William Carlos Williams (what was your mother thinking?) and his apparently crucial wheelbarrow.
