Cold Night-Hot Day - Poem by Joe Howell

snow was blowing a white night
sitting in my car, guarding more then
against the cold, i fought the night

when my relief came, at midnight
what is this? he had no car
tempature reading four degrees

i offer him mine for the night,
just dropp me home-not far,
wake me up when you get off

he refused, said his wife would be by
later with some food, so i left him, in
the cold, winter white
