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

---Williams Carlos Williams

This is one of my favorite poems!!! Williams is one of my fav poets. I like his use of simple words to express complicated emotions.
When I was in college, I had tried to mimic his style but of course I'm not 1% as good as him!
Another poet that I like a lot is c c cummings. I think you'd probably like his style.

德州卡門, 正想問你是否ee cummings.

詩呢, 我是不懂的, 也不讀得不多, 尤其是外文詩. 剛巧遇到這一首, 覺得簡單平實中富韻味: 甜固然是甜, 不過同一屋簷下卻要靠紙仔來溝通, 就有一點distant了(so cold).

好奇問一句, 敝泊荒山野嶺, 你是如何摸進來的?

事緣正在讀怒火的新post, 便順道到此一遊了!

ee cummings... I remember I had to write an essay on one of his poems in college or something like that... I couldn't understand his poem!! :( It was a very simple (in form) poem but difficult to understand!

I think I'm just bad in poetry! :((((
