Eraser

May 28, 2008
By Justin Karp, New York, NY

All I do is subtract:
I never add.
I feel so sad,
But people love me like the freshest
water
Because I wash away
All their errors.
I am total paradise
And total nothingness.
When I comb through coats of dead chalk
To drink them clean,
I am so useful to humans
Who then value me so much.
