Poetics Of The Day: William Blake

Poetics of The Day

The Vision of Christ that thou dost see
Is my vision’s greatest enemy.

Thine has a great hook nose like thine;Mine has a snub nose like to mine.Thine is the friend of all Mankind,

Mine speaks in parables to the blind,Thine loves the same world that mine hates,Thy heaven-doors are my hell-gates….

Both read the Bible day and night,But thou reads black where I read white

.—William Blake:

The Everlasting Gospel
