Analysis

(7) Snow Line

It may seem like a little poem about a jar would be pretty simple to get through, but this one is, well, more jarring than round and smooth. There are lots of lines that throw us for a loop, and the meaning of words and phrases can be easily distorted, as if we'd seen it through the glass of a jar. Yet once we twist open the meaning of this poem, it yields delicious, thought-provoking fruit. And it tastes all the sweeter for the work it took to take off the lid!
