She’s a shoveler as white as snow

Her true friends don’t even know.

One knows her addiction, cold

dripping moisture from her nose

A sinus infection is her false witness

And no one knows. 

She’s the shark in the ocean, but prefers swimming in lakes

Where the warmth of bodies

Keep her safe.

She’s falling again.

She’s cold again.

This time she’ll need another call.

She’s a day walker

So they say

Little do they know 

She walks all day.
