WHEN IT RAINS, IT SNOWS by Nathan Logan

When It Rains, It Snows

There’s one winner and,
like, twenty losers when
it’s a battle for who gets
to clean what birds at the
natural disaster site. Stop
at the next Waffle House
though, I want the batter
shaped like Texas––my
hunger could melt a dumb
snowman. Scheming is always
a priority at the beach. My
tsunami warning ringtone
virtually guarantees we will
get to scrub the duckies.
“Mom,” I’ll text, “call me
when you can. Call me
and the alarm will sound.”
