I Hid

Featured

I am happy… no

I act happy… no

I try to act happy…

i hope that
no one sees it
in my face
on my breath

the cheap vodka
i chugged greedily
right before i
stepped in the door

right before they
warned us
shelter will close
if one more bottle

one more needle
or cap is
found in the building
and even after

i walked back
saying i wanted
to get coffee
so i could

sneak another
few swigs as i
hid behind
the doorway
