This found poem was taken from page four paragraph five of the short story “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant” By W. D. Wetherell. The poem is about how the internal conflict happened inside the protagonist, because he was struggling between the two choices, the girl and the bass. We can learn from this conflict in the rising action that the character will do very extreme things for love. That is the reason why the character let the bass, and his passion go. He chose the girl instead of the bass is because he thinks love is more important than passion.
