Hello Paper Airplane This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Hellopaper airplane,
Perched in the rain gutter,
Nose blunted by yourinsistence
On sniffing out dead ends.
Raise the stakes, can youcarry
Your passengers across the gap
Between rooftops? know thatalleys
Lurk down below. write a prayer -
A lucky number - on yourwings.
Beware of insect aviators,
Flustered by glass windows.
Your taskat hand is to travel far.
Crash course in fuel economics.
A jet line isblown and the wind
Grows lazy. emergency landing.
Refreshments spill fromsteward's tray.
Blinking lights line an
Improvised runway.
