Manifest Destiny (Infinite Loop)

~ erasure poem based on The First Voyage Round the World
Antonio Pigafetta, 1874

      one of them with a great sword      gave him a great blow on the left
leg, which brought the captain down on his face

they deprived of life our mirror, light, comfort,           true guide

He died; 

                    Most versed in nautical charts, he knew

                               how to attempt the circuit of the
globe, which he         almost completed
