On Second Thought

erasure of a page from Samuel Pepys' diary

A man, a man, a man
came from London, from London, from London
to the arms of a captain, a captain, a captain…
and it comes now into my mind to observe that I have been a little too free to make mirth, he being a very sober and an upright man.

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Wednesday 11 April 1660.
