Erase all the words
Just like that
Why do you ask?
Yes. Because Isn’t an answer is it?
To be philosophical.
Aren’t we all turning to philosophy?
I suppose, I want you to delete it all
Because at least
On a laptop,
On a computer
With its keys and its functions and commands
You can make all those black Times New Roman characters go away
Like they never existed
Not like life.
In life you cant erase so prettily
Word Documents don’t come blank
Scars get left behind
And emotional baggage
And faint traces of tear tracks.
So go on.
Make a mess on Paint!
Write absolute nonsense on Excel cells!
Download a million useless pictures
And photoshop them
And facebook accounts?
Make a dozen.
Because at the end
They can just be
Removed from virtual memory
