word crush monday: blake

i spent the day doing
new things.
i sent many a text message
and drank coffee
early in the morning.

twice i sat upstairs
of a double-decker bus
and watched the world
go by.

i made a tiny payment
on my loan
and thought about
working out.

in the earliest hours
i scribbled an idea
on a notepad,
and left others in my brain.

they’re still here.

and then, i read the following

the man who never in his mind
and thoughts travel’d to heaven
is no artist.
