Homelessness

All the morning at the office. At noon dined at home, and after dinner up to my new closett, which pleases me mightily, and there I proceeded to put many things in order as far as I had time, and then set it in washing, and stood by myself a great while to see it washed; and then to the office, and then wrote my letters and other things, and then in mighty good humour home to supper and to bed.

a home close as any order
as far as me

I wash myself a great while
to shed my other bed


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 25 August 1666.
