Auspex

Up, and all day long busy at the office, mighty busy, only stepped to my lodging and had a fowl for my dinner, and at night my wife and Mercer comes to me, which troubled me a little because I am to be mighty busy to-morrow all day seriously about my accounts. So late from my office to her, and supped, and so to bed.

on the only step
an owl

night comes to me
because I am late to her bed


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Tuesday 17 October 1665.
