Eraser Girl

Eraser Girl,
What erasest thou?
Are you eating the eraser
     to prevent erasure?
Are you breaking it into
     more erasers
To erase The World and all
     her misprints?
You try to erase your desire
You try to erase your hands
You try to erase your Pen-And-Ink mind
Your entire pencil wants erasing
Chunky, clumpy
Eraser snot
Will it clean you?
Will it take care of the terminal
Foot-In-Mouth disease?
Will it draw out the embarrassment
     From days--hours--minutes--
     seconds ago now?
You make me laugh
You intrigue me
Consider me a stain.
