Thanks for the kind words, Dick. I’m eager to see what you come up with. I must tell you, though, these have been a lot more work than composing an original poem from scratch. I have at least two completely different erasures of most entries so far; one yielded as many as four before I found one I was satisfied with. But the perhaps unattainable idea of a kind of mash-up between Rabelais and surrealism keeps me going.
