Stand on the Thracian stair!
Never see the new-born Siren
bitch her chant-imperfect—
Beauty’s expression is eternal stead.

Faithless lyrists I have read
They’d amputate the rose to know the rose
— and patch it a clumsy detection.

No thing of beauty was meant for inspection
Else detected
it would blush
and ache to endure

—  From ‘Let Us Inspect the Lyre’ by Gregory Corso (via avanelle)
