This Is Just to Say
by Charlotte

after William Carlos William

I have eaten
the Keens
that were by
the door

and which
you were probably
for posterity

Forgive me
they were delicious
so dreamy
and so ripe

Postscript: And now you'll have to buy a new pair. Aren't you happy?

(With apologies to William Carlos Williams)

She ate your Keens?? Oh no!

I guess Keens are shoes and not just, like, human biscuits....:))
Derrick said…
Uh-oh! Methinks Kathleen will be kinda angry to lose them and kinda happy to be getting a new pair!

Good news, bad news kinda thing.

That's hilarious, but what, pray tell are Keens?
The photo is adorable. You can't get mad at a face like that. (They bank on that, don't they?)

Poetikat said…
Oh! They don't look very tasty.

By the way, you didn't pick up your award!

Erin Davis said…
Oh, I love individual takes on "This is Just to Say." What fun, but sorry about your Keens.
Pyzahn said…
Uh oh. Somebody's in the dog house. And I know how much you love your Keen's (which I'm now going to look up because I don't know what they are...I mean I know they are shoes, but that the limit of my knowledge.)

Charlotte is not only cute, she is a poetipup, too!

Are Keens like crocs, or flip flops?

Am I gonna be able to post this comment? I sure hope so.

Oh my! Bad, bad doggie. You are a bad doggie.

I tried to rescue a black and tan coonhound last year who went by the name of Ellie. By the time she moved out, I was calling her Jezebel. She chewed my bright orange Keens. Devil Dog.
