Writing Prompt 1 – Emily (25)

Ok, here is the result of the writing prompt based on Shel Silverstein’s poem “Magical Eraser.” I’m posting mine first, and then I’ll post Brian’s at 9:30!

how i became half blind

he gave me a magical eraser
told me to be careful
I laughed,
started with the nose, carved a bit of curve free
like clipping toenails, it fell
disappointed in revision, I bent down
picked up the lopped off nostril
but then the eraser slipped
and caught my eye.
