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

“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement,  That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”
