Metamorphosis

At the office all the morning, and all the afternoon rummaging of papers in my chamber, and tearing some and sorting others till late at night, and so to bed, my wife being not well all this day. This afternoon Mrs. Turner and The. came to see me, her mother not having been abroad many a day before, but now is pretty well again and has made me one of the first visits.

rum till late at night
and being not well
I turn moth


Erasure haiku derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Tuesday 11 March 1661/62.
