Magic Eraser

Magic Eraser

a Poem by Raquel Swann


If I had the magic eraser

which could only be found

in one market in the universe

on the planet Venus

in the center of

the city Armastus

and only when the sun sets

which is once a millennia

I would

erase this notion that

skin tones






Have anything to do with who we are,


I would also erase the word,

and emotion – hate.

Imagine a world without it

for a moment.

You smiled, didn’t you?

    Love it! This is so true! We need an eraser so we can get to the soul of the matter. I think we have put that on the back burner when really it’s so much deeper than labels, titles, and what we have created testify what is real and what is true. Thanks for writing!! Can’t wait to read more! 😀
