This Is Just to Say- Dim Sum remix

*Inspired by William Carlos Williams’ This Is Just to Say

I have eaten 

the dim sum


which you were so 


to consume

Forgive me

the sticky rice

the siu mai

so savory

and so satisfying

  1. I love this! But I also felt a small amount of anger because I’ve had my leftovers eaten! Lol!! Very creative. I’m terrible at poetry, but I think if I do what you did and base it off another poem, I could pull it off! Great slice!!


  2. YESSSS!!!!! I might be stealing this idea! ALSO, side note, WCW is one of my all time favorites and This is Just to Say is a personal favorite. I might have to use this as a mentor text sooooonnnnn. *Also, don’t touch my leftovers ha ha ha ha


  3. I love using this poem to write my own apologies. 🙂 I love how instead of plums, you have eaten leftovers. That seems like such a perfect modernization of the poem.
