by Sam Hogg


My cocoon tightens, colors tease,
I’m feeling for the air;
A dim capacity for wings
Degrades the dress I wear.

A power of butterfly must be
The aptitude to fly,
Meadows of majesty concedes
And easy sweeps of sky.

So I must baffle at the hint
And cipher at the sign,
And make much blunder,
if at last I take the clew divine.

Written by Emily Dickinson

Inspired by the beautiful poem above by the US poet Emily Dickinson, this piece is a continuation of my exploration around the themes of life, death and grief in my work. Piece comes unframed, in a simple white photomount and ships from the UK.
