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

-- William Carlos Williams

ABout your girls hair: There is a street on the southside of chicago called 87th Street. Between Jeffrey and Stony Island, there are at 3-6 braid shops. My sister say's they are all good. Most of them are African Braid shops and do a great job. In fact, I wanted to get my head did while i was there but did not want to sit a shop and waste my vacation.

Yum! I love plums, the darker the better they are. You always make me hungry when I come here.

I love finding poetry randomly. Thanks for that. "So sweet and so cold." Best line.:)
