I have a magic eraser that will remove anything. If a student grows unruly I merely rub her with the soft nub of my eraser and she is gone. If the Principal reviews me harshly I can undo him. I can erase the entire school or the entire public school system with thirty furious seconds of scrubbing, blowing, brushing with the back of my hand. Sometimes I lock my door, draw the curtains and chop my eraser into long white lines of Delete. Of course most teachers don’t use their magic erasers because they are afraid. But I say that nothing is forever and when this mess is erased and blown away we will we have a fresh start.
