Burden

erasure of a page from Samuel Pepys' diary

[In the morning at my lute
the carrier will carry to the carrier
oranges and two barrels of sun
sake and sack, lamb and veal
a pocket to carry in his pocket

after supper at my flute]


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Thursday 16 February 1659/60.
