Manifest Destiny (Infinite Loop)

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


In the island                   are mines of gold, which they
find in pieces as big as a walnut or an egg

               he had a cross

                          he showed them       the
sign of the emperor his lord and master

         we saw many houses         built on trees

                                                if he
wished for peace he would have peace       if he wished for war he would have war
