Mis Quickly’s Day 28: In the Style of


Your Little Black Cloud

This is just to say
that I’ve drained
your little black cloud.

It came swimming at me,
like a water bird.
A depth. A loon.

And I was a boat
in its wake.



written for Miz Quickly Day 28: write a poem in the style of William Carlos Williams’ “This Is Just To Say”
