National Poetry Month: April 12th

Pachyderm by Sherman Alexie

1. Sheldon decided he was an elephant.
                       .
2. Everywhere he went, he wore a gray t-shirt, gray sweat pants, and gray basketball shoes.
                                       .
3. He also carried a brass trumpet that he’d painted white.
             .
4. Sometimes he used that trumpet as a tusk.
                          .
5. Then he’d use it as the other tusk.
         .
6. Sometimes he played that brass trumpet and pretended it was an elephant trumpet.
