Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on Texas topics.

Texans, especially those who live in the southern half of the state, are often unfamiliar with winer precipitation and how to deal with it. For instance, what if it gets on your car?

Texas Ice Scrapers

It’s cold outside y’all

the rain is doing a weird thing

and sticking

Solid

to the windshield

which begs the question

how

how

do you scrape it off?

spatula?

credit card?

CD case?

hot water?

tamale spreader?

plastic

spaceship

toy?

or maybe

just maybe

we can wait it out

sit inside

wait for a time

  and the temperature

will surely soar

right?

 

right?

RIGHT?!
