At one time it wasn’t by choice; it’s just how I’m wired. _Now_ I can see “This is what the author/artist intends” but that’s through years of trying to understand how I’m supposed to think.
But natively? naturally? I rarely get the conclusion intended. It’s not that I take a poetic license…I’m cursed with it tattooed to my brain and have to work around it most of the time tongue emoticon
