what seekest thou?

Star-staring earthling,
puff'd with insolence
gazed with such
a curious Eye

What seekest thou?
Angels too
want to Know

deep in the Heart
dancing with Passion

. . . . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure poem|commentary is 'earthling.'

It was really hard for me to erase my very favorite citation from Dr. Rutty's Spiritual Diary in 1776: "The women are taking your crowns from off your heads, O ye boobies and earthlings of men!" I expect to be exclaiming "O ye boobies!" as often as I possibly can.
