Plums and Noodles

What makes

I have eaten
the plumbs
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

(William Carlos Williams)

a "good poem" (according to Garrison Keillor who put it in his book of Good Poems) when

I am cutting the noodles
in my soup, because
they are too long
and won't
stay on my spoon.


is just silly?
