Venomous Rusty Double

A new voice from within the pages of my notebook. This one seems to be a tiller of the soil…
Spine of a snake on my land
I froze in summer.
Did this person freeze the snake remains (it is a well-known fact that some artists keep animal carcasses in their freezer), or freeze at the first sight of them?
Later, upon finding a shed snakeskin, apparently with a reddish hue:
Venomous rusty double, pulled and crinkled,
Shed skin with the shape of other things.
In the shape of other things?! Like what? Shoes? Car keys? Pumpkins? How did the snake manage to do that, and, more importantly, why?
