Shakesperasure

In celebration of Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, my twenty-third poem is an erasure based on a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

msnd new

I
heard a dolphin’s
dulcet
song
between the cold moon and the earth,
loosed from
a thousand hearts.

The wat’ry
meditation
fell upon
me
madly
and
the liquor of it
shall
render me
invisible.

Therefore
I
follow
you, adamant.
