Dylan Thomas

This is Michael’s tattoo.

Literary Tattoos: The force that through the green fuse drives the flower Dylan Thomas

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose
My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.

- Excerpt from “The force that through the green fuse drives the flower” by Dylan Thomas.  Read the whole poem here.
