April - NaPoWriMo - 2

He used regular white
Paper for his boat
And folded it
To make it float.

He used regular blue
Paper to make a kite
To fly the sky.

He used regular sand
Paper to scratch
The scars and lines away
That marred his face
When age took him too far
From boats and kites.

He used regular bright
Paper in many vivid hues
And typed
His story all his did-s and done-s and do-es.

They disappeared.

He used regular news
Paper to line the bench
And cover hope and tears.

One day we read he’d died,
Just as he feared.
