Manifest Destiny (Infinite Loop)

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


                 he who            kept         first watch, on the
following day

                       the end of a river

                                          many little villages
from which to enter                              a port

                        Near     the cape

days                           where we sojourned  

                           once a day at the hour of
midday, there descends a cloud 

a great abundance of water distils
                     the animals, both domestic and wild,

drink of it
