Candy Jones Knows How to Calm Down

Jenn Koiter

Steal some
little boy’s marbles, toss

a dozen or so
into a frying pan, and let them

fry for a half hour.
Pour them

into a bowl of ice water
and watch them

crack up.
They can be strung

to make a necklace
or bracelet, and all the while

you’ve fried up
your frustrations and

feel great.
