The concept of this found poem is about internal conflict – between the protagonist and himself (man vs self). He has to choose whether he should choose the fish or the girl, because he loves both. At the rising actions, this issue wasn’t as important, but during the climax, it become obvious it’s either the girl, or the bass. My poem shows this by highlighting words that showed confusion and indecisiveness. My artwork isn’t particularly meaningful — it’s just the canoe this whole scene happened in. This poem originated from page three of “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant”The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant” by W.D. Wetherell.
