NOT THE SOUTH OF FRANCE, Or Even Tahiti
Do they track us? Someone
above reproach on her porch who
never refuses to pay her dues?
Still, they settle into a chorus line
on the condo building across
the way: "Turkey Buzzards"
a half dozen of them, because
it's Florida, and they like it here.
Poised on the rooftops topmost
tip, hunched over like gargoyles
at Notre-Dame, but this is not Paris,
didn't someone tell them this?
They are here to scare
with their watchful stare. We,
to wonder, that ARE their thoughts:
Designs as dark as the ellipses
they live in? Do they mean us harm?
We, consigned to neighborhoods
tagged "Bahama Point" and
"Paradise Commons"? Uncommon
signatures we'd be skeptics
to believe signed us up
for the Tropics.
