I did not

empty the sink

of waiting dishes

to the dishwasher

 

thus this week’s

plates, and forks and pans

remain

fossilizing

 

Forgive me,

my Netflix queue

had liars, French comedy

and superheroes

 

Today’s poem was inspired by the book “Forgive Me, I Meant To Do It” by Gail Carson Levine which is a series of false apology poems from fairy tales.  False apology poems are styled after William Carlos Williams’ “This is Just to Say” which you can read here.
