NaPoWriMo 4/10/2013

Today's NaPoWriMo prompt is to write an un-love poem...and I'm thinking...hah...too easy.

To the Person Who Ate My Plums

This is just to say
That I am feeling really bummed
Having come home
From a long tiring day
To find
You raided
My ice-box
And the sweet cold plums
I'd been saving
In all their delicious ripeness
Were gone
The only trace
To reveal they once existed
The half cleaned pits you left
Still glistening
With pulpy plummy flesh
Slimy on the cheap Formica counter.

This is a response to the popular poem This is Just to Say, by William Carlos Williams, as you might have figured.
