Rage for order

At the office in the morning and all the afternoon at home to put my papers in order. This day we come to some agreement with Sir R. Ford for his house to be added to the office to enlarge our quarters.

At the office
in the morning and all
the afternoon.
To order
is to add ice
to enlarge our art.


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Tuesday 20 August 1661.

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.

For attribution in printed material, his name (Dave Bonta) will suffice, but for web use, please link back to the original.
