Manifest Destiny (Infinite Loop)

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


                          sweet oranges, a vessel of palm

bracelets and rings of gold on their arms

            holes in their ears so large           they can pass their arms through

there are birds, figs a palm long, sweet canes,        flying fish

       These people
poor, but ingenious, and great thieves

           thought                             there were

no other men in the world besides them
