Snowflakes – A Poem by Dave Lordan
Written after I got called a snowflake on the internet by some right wing troll. I was quite flattered, as of course a snowflake means a person with a conscience, but also it’s an insult that is usually thrown at people much younger than me! It’s such a stupid insult, because of course snowflakes are uniquely beautiful objects that fall from heaven and transform the world en masse. And then the whole collection of poems reflects on that idea of beautiful uniqueness, and the unique fragilities of individually beautiful humans I have known over the years.
