Leaves of Grass

From “The Complete Poems“:

His bearded, thirty-something face is hoaled by a wide-bimmed hat places at a rakish angle; his right hand on his hip, his left in his pocket. He wears a cotton work shirt open at the throat and his flannel undershirt is plain to see. The look on his face is hard to define, he seems relaxed and wordly-wise, not easily fooled.

What hard to define is, to myself, how well the introduction’s writer works with words. Well described, well described!
