the poem "snow" is about the little brother loosing his innocents because
the bigger brother had told him that a farmer had killed the snow angels.
the poem is actually very sad if you understand it correctly.

I believe the poem is about conflict. Perhaps it is as specific as Israel
and Palestine, but that I cannot tell.
Seth is the brother of Cain and Abel and the biblical father of all
mankind. If the little brother is Seth, then the narrator is Cain or Abel.
The narrator refers to war references in the following: "a 'troop' of
angels", "shot and dissolved...", and the most obvious "a room with the
walls blasted to shreds and falling."
Since Seth is the father of all people, then the people fighting must be
his children, making the questions he asks come from a very different
perspective with that in mind. Ultimately, why are his children fighting
over property? That is, why do people fight at all?
I find it interesting that the older brother appears to have a good, if
mostly silent relationship with his neighbor (i.e. another country).
Perhaps the narrator is suggesting that is the way countries should

This poem is not "kinda weird"
different maybe, but "weird" is more of a negative connotation
this poem evokes though and emotion
it is amazing like all of his poetry and music
