Billi Caught a Fish

Went fishing with a friend, who bought him a fishing license, and though he didn't technically hook the fish himself, he says his friend let him reel it in. Street Books volunteer Amy Bradley was there, and said it made her think of Elizabeth Bishop's poem, called "The Fish." The fish in her poem ("battered and venerable and homely"), has a happier ending than Billi's fish. It's well worth the read. 20111204-202307.jpg
