James Wright: “All Flawless Hexagons May Melt and Break”

Photographer Unknown, (Tattoos in a Green Room)

“Give winter nothing; hold; and let the flake
Poise or dissolve along your upheld arms.
All flawless hexagons may melt and break;
While you must feel the summer’s rage of fire,
Beyond this frigid season’s empty storms.
Banished to bloom, and bear the birds’ desire.”

James Wright, The Green Room
