Eraser

February 12, 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 am the ultimate destroyer
Of their mistakes:
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.
