Manifest Destiny (Infinite Loop)


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

12.
 
      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
