'Cardboard City Sonnet'

The cardboard boxes caressed the city
Buildings, monuments, statues of paper
Vacant and hollow they begged for pity
A whisper echoed up to skyscrapers

Then on Rectangle Road came a loud thump
Eroding ten at a time boxes collapsed
Silence screamed louder until nothing was rump
Splinters of paper cuts made all elapse

Two Sketcher sneakers, the feet of giants
Plowed through the city streets giving none mercy
Fists like boulders crumbled defiant
The ashes of peace evoked gramercy

In this boy's playground he played the role God
With imagination nothing is odd
