Mandy's Poem "Instructions For Snow In April"

Mandy wrote this poem in a CORE/Labor Source class and read it at the Dairy Center for the Arts performance on June 21st.

Instructions for Snow in April

It’s snowing in April
Will this be a staple?
In December, the white dots were light
This spring, it is wet like an insane dog
The sun should shine
Bright enough to blind

To melt the snow:
1. Throw table salt over your shoulder as a message to the sun.
2. Eat oatmeal made with snow instead of water. It is recommended that you use a frozen snow bowl, if available.
3. Create a snow van and crawl inside. Then, pretend to drive up to Iris Avenue.
4. Meditate on heat.
