In the Hague (tanka)

erasure of a page from Samuel Pepys' diary

Two pretty ladies
kiss the two blades with them.
I drop my rapier.
We walk up and down the town.
In every door, the moon.

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Monday 14 May 1660.

Dave Bonta (bio) crowd-sources his problems by following his gut, which he shares with 100 trillion of his closest microbial friends — a close-knit, symbiotic community comprising several thousand species of bacteria, fungi, and protozoa.
