ANGLISH

Just face right
up to it, slick copy-
writer—one morning,

all of your 
swift flowing
currents of 
pure thought may happen

to align their phases—perfectly 
with the 
rhythm of some
babbling and sense-
lessly incandescent old river—what do you write 

then? Right then 
and there? when
there's
nothing really swimming
in your mind to say—except may-
be mawkish-
ly—over

and 
again:  

Gone Fishin' 
Gone Fishin' 
Gone Fishin' 
Gone Fishin'

Well, heck—that 
ain't such 
good English—is it? Though 

yes, it is some good—
American.
