    One mistake, otherwise great.

    Is he writing them on a white sheet (the things you put on the mattress of your bed) or a white sheet of paper?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Maybe he's a Klansman and he truly is in (wearing) a white sheet.

    There's a stray indefinite article in and a writes.

    I find the line rather poetic, actually.
