what they don’t know about snow
and it’s warm if you snort it.
ducks. ducks hate snow
because it blindfolds the grass.
snow grows giants. you walk over it
and your prints get bigger through the day.
roses in snow look like
ladies in furs.
snow doesn’t hide the cracks,
it cushions them.
when snow gets sick, it gets angry
and hard, like ice.
angry snow hurts. it makes
going for a walk scary.
the men in orange jackets take scary snow away.
maybe it goes to prison, maybe they kill it.
the snow that’s left gets old and tired, even the snowmen.
eventually they shrivel up to look just like rocks. And that’s the end of the snow.
