English term or phrase: fishwife cross gulls
Hello!
As you know this is part of a Dylan Thomas poem titled Prologue. My question is: How would you understand this single phrase? How would you explain it if you had to? How would you translate it into Spanish?
Anything that comes to mind I'll greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

agree  Nelida Kreer: Yes, what else? It would be nice if askers would provide fuller contexts, which would be time-saving both for them and us, no te parece? Buena semana, Deb!

  -> muchas gracias Niki. Your comment reminds me of when the writer of the song "Bye Bye, Miss American Pie" was asked what the lyrics meant, and he replied, "they mean I shan't have to work again in my life unless I want to" (!) Un abrazo fuerte :-)
