    I am paper.
    Marked upon and marked and marked.
    There are terrible things written upon me
    that have been written upon me.
    I have tried to erase these things
    scrubbed till the paper was raw.
    Mostly they have been made
    if not invisible, faded.
    The eraser is incautious
    the good that lies and lay underneath
    rubbed out of memory with the bad.

    Thanks. I don't share my poetry often. It's nice to know it connects with someone.
