Atril dribbles - 13

Long and slim with pointed end
Good for digging holes in friends
Scratching paper, drawing lines
“Not right,” says teacher, but they’re mine
“Not writing,” so I talk instead
Recordings twist the words I’ve said
“Then learn to write,” teacher replies
I clutch that pencil, struggle, try
Erasers conquer all.
