Re: My Salmon
I read it to my other half.
"It's good", he said, "but you weren't using a waggler, I think it was a stick float".
"I know", I said, "but it wouldn't scan".
I read it out again with 'stick float' instead of 'waggler'. "You see?" I said, "It's better my way. It's called poetic licence".
He nodded but I don't think he agrees- he's a bit of a purist about such things.
