"The school year is ending and pencils sell cheap / At the gigantic grocery store"

Transcendental Sonnet #1394:



The school year is ending and pencils sell cheap

At the gigantic grocery store

So I bought a lot of them and stacked them deep

In my Grandma's old wooden desk drawer

Pencils are things which are very hard to keep

Enough of and I always need more


Not the pencils actually

They last as long for me as anyone

It is their erasers you see

Which never last to their end once begun

Confronted by uncertainty

Without erasers I get nothing done


Pencils all over the house with their erasers rubbed flat...

Write with no erasers?  Even I am too smart for that...

This is a wonderful little story with a great hidden message I think...we all make mistakes the thing is to have those safety erasers handy so we can correct and move on.

LOL. You must write like I do, Steven. Every eraser in this house has disappeared. I love the form you have chosen for this work. Your couplet sums it all up nicely.
