Jesse Glass's erasure poems in Mans Wows (Black Mesa Press (now Chax Press), 1982), are now online at Duration Press, here. Glass chooses John Judge Hohman's 1820 pamplet Pow Wows (online here), from which to excavate his poems. For example, Hohman's page 33-34:
A WELL-TRIED PLASTER TO REMOVE MORTIFICATION
Take six hen's eggs and boil them in hot ashes until they are right hard; then take the yellow of the eggs and fry them in a gill of lard until they are quite black; then put a handful of rue with it, and afterward filter it through a cloth. When this is done add a gill of sweet
oil to it. It will take most effect where the plaster for a female is prepared by a male, and the plaster for a male prepared by a female.
