On a pencil eraser

Written by: Vertical Vertical

I hold this eraser in my hand
with a whale on it
smiling above the two lines that mark the waves
and the name of the brand
to erase and be erased 
is written beneath the beady eyed whale.
A line to make it smile 
two to make its universe
no colours have these waves 
and the whale smiles for not being blue.
Its tail has already dissolved 
along with the last letter of the brand name
in the words of lead
written in thoughtlessness
by 'wanton children'.
To undo a child's folly 
must this smile be gone?
These waves and a big name all?
For Man who erred in words 
and dissolved my whale's innocent little world
in words?
