What is "This is Just to Say" about?

In ["This is Just to Say"](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Is_Just_To_Say) by William Carlos Williams, the speaker appears to deliver an apology for stealing the plums of the person at whom the poem is targeted. I have heard some people analyze this poem as being truly about plums. However, I have seen others analyze this poem as being about murder or sexual assault. What is the poem truly about? Here is the text of the poem: >I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox >and which you were probably saving for breakfast >Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold.
