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

gender

sexuality

religion

race

age

Have anything to do with who we are,

inside.

I would also erase the word,

and emotion – hate.

Imagine a world without it

for a moment.

You smiled, didn’t you?
