Chana Carlos Williams

In honor of National Poetry Month, we talked about William Carlos Williams' famous "not-really-an-apology" poem "This Is Just To Say":

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

Chana came up with a great one as her version:

"I have ripped your skirt
it was your favorite

Forgive me
your head
makes a good trampoline"

Umm, this poem bears absolutely NO resemblance to life in the Goldberg house. Yeah, none :)
