William Carlos Williams left a note of apology for savoring the forbidden fruit meant to be served with breakfast. Here are my comments on his words:
William Carlos Williams apologizes
He says he regrets he ate the plums
He knows they were meant to be served for breakfast
Is he really sorry that he enjoyed his fruit?
His apology seems more than a little insincere– I think
He enjoyed his late night snack, savored its deep flavor,
He recalls the taste of his forbidden fruit with pleasure
