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
saving
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 :)
