  1. Kind of my favorite. You dared make it snarky…yes!

    Yep.

    Today, this poem is about a woman who’s found out she’s pregnant and doesn’t want to be (yet). I’ve deduced this because there’s a missing period at the end of the poem. So I think she’s feeling really sick and can’t eat the plums she bought because they taste like sour grapes to her jacked-up taste buds. And of course, she has a sour-grapes attitude about it at this point. 🙂
