Prompt #9: Palimpsest Poem

Palimpsest: a manuscript on which two or more successive texts have been written, each one being erased to make room for the next (World English Dictionary).

Write a poem that has "erasures" and starts over, creating layers that allows the poem's truth to bleed through. This poem would be an altered poem with blanked words or crossed out lines.

You could take a poem that's not working and alter it, leaving the edits visible.
