Teaching first-year English, I am very strict about grammar and punctuation. One day, as we read the works of a modern poet, a young woman seemed puzzled.

“How come he uses capital letters in the middle of the sentence and misspells some of the words?” she asked.

“That’s called ‘poetic license,’” I explained.

“Oh!” she replied. “How can I apply for one?”
