Texts From William Blake

blakehi
hi
I got you a present
you did?
I drew you something
oh wow
is it horrifying?
no
do you promise?
William?
do you promise me that it’s not horrifying?
i drew you something
William
you know what I mean
what do you mean by horrifying
is anyone being
flayed alive in it
or committing suicide
or does something have eyes that shouldn’t have eyes
you know what I mean
horrifying
never mind
sorry i bothered you
William
it isn’t that
you know I like your drawings
i know
I just already have so many watercolors of flayings already
I wouldn’t know where to put another one
you could put it in the kitchen
you don’t have hardly any of my flayings in there

so it is a picture of someone being flayed
well
sort of
i mean they’re already flayed but they’re not getting flayed
it’s not like a double flaying
ooh wait
hang on

 

Bring me my Bow of burning gold
William what are you talking about
Bring me my Arrows of desire
You’re not allowed to have arrows
has someone let you have arrows?
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
William
you don’t have any of those things
and there aren’t any clouds out
it’s a very nice day
why don’t you come outside in the garden for a little while
it’s a very nice day out here
Bring me my Chariot of fire!
I can’t do that, I’m afraid
but I can bring you a cup of tea
would you like me to bring you a cup of tea?
William?
would you like that?
it’s no chariot of fire but I’ll put lots of milk in it
bring me a cup of tea
I’ll get you a cup of tea
a cup of tea of fire
what’s that?
hmm?
what?
nothing
just a normal cup of tea with no fire in it yet
at all
not yet
ha ha ha ha ha

 

When the Sun rises do you not see a round Disk of fire
somewhat like a Guinea

I guess it could look like that
O no no I see an Innumerable company of the Heavenly host
oh
crying Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty
I guess it could be that too
either the money or the screaming angels
WOULD YOU QUESTION A WINDOW
what?
WOULD YOU QUESTION A WINDOW
I suppose not
I suppose I wouldn’t
THEN NEITHER WILL I QUESTION MY CORPOREAL NOR VEGETATIVE EYE

 

Every thing in Dantes Comedia shews That for Tyrannical Purposes he has made This World the Foundation of All & the Goddess Nature & not the Holy Ghost
are you drawing pictures of Hell again
Keep just as you are – I will draw your portrait – for you have ever been an angel to me
okay
okay I’ll keep real still
take all the time you want
what do you think would happen
if Heaven and Hell got MARRIED

I don’t know
a Line or Lineament is not formed by Chance a Line is a Line in its Minutest Subdivision[s] Strait or Crooked It is Itself & Not Intermeasurable with or by any Thing Else Such is Job
are we
are we still talking about Hell or are we talking about math now
