Thanks for stopping by, Tom. I’ll check that out. Most of my exposure to the form has been through the work of other online poets, but I’m mostly groping out my own methodology here. I don’t see any compelling reason to preserve Pepys’ paragraph spaces, especially since I am changing so much else (including punctuation when need be). If it turns out that I am too far from established orthodoxy for these to be true erasure poems, I’ll simply call them something else. :)
