Domestic arrangements

erasure of a page from Samuel Pepys' diary

[Took leave of all the keys
and the old told clock
there in the city of money

where I drank an hour,
where a black chair resolved
to satisfy the bed.]

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 21 January 1659/60.
