No. 2

What is this pale yellow device?
Its trails most valuable
Indestructible once absorbed.
Its value lies not in and of itself
But where it was and will yet be.

Ideas left in dirty stains
On otherwise pristine white pages.

This is a rare thing
Something worth more dirty than clean.

And even as the fingers of fearful flame
Grasp at ideas that upset
This pale yellow device's trails
Are among the most valuable
They fear no flame.
