Today's Eraser

Always wears
Blue ear muffs

Last week's eraser
Tunes its hearing aid
To the day after tomorrow

Last month's eraser specializes in
The noises of sex
From the sad Lonelies who talk slowly in their sleep

Last year's eraser knows
What's going
To happen
After the historians delete
A few million corpses from a footnote
