Bad Cold Weather Dream

I was taken
the few blocks,
having given up my
driving privileges
several years ago
and having been
without a car.
It was warm
in the back seat,
even as the snow
glistened hard.
The van turned
into the driveway.
I felt in my pocket for my
remaining twenty cents.
They took me through
the wood, the glass
and tiled foyer
into which the cold
winter sunlight poured.
They brought in my
suitcase full of
underwear and socks.
I couldn't admit
that I was hungry.
