A Poem for January (with apologies to William Carlos Williams)

I have eaten
the chocolate
that was in
the cupboard

and which
I was meant to be
saving
for February

Forgive me
it was delicious
so sweet
and so dark

(confessional/ode to Williams’ classic poem about plums, which you can read here)

and now you know how my January resolution to eat only whole foods is going. Sometimes you just need a bit of chocolate, y’all.
