William Blake, who was born today, was eaten alive and naked in his garden by his wife, by earth owner, by his god disguised as tiger. His was no natural religion. In India, you wear a human mask backwards to unnerve the crouching. In America, you incise at the base of the skull and explicate the flesh off in one clean motion. Between the two, William Blake takes his stripes.
