A Divine Image

Cruelty has a human heart,
And Jealousy a human face;
Terror the human form divine,
And Secresy the human dress.

The human dress is forged iron,
The human form a fiery forge,
The human face a furnace sealed,
The human heart its hungry gorge.

William Blake

Very cool. I am going to have to stop back in and take that one in more. I have been reading short stories by Carver. Challenging, depressing and very cool.
