NOT THE SOUTH OF FRANCE, Or Even Tahiti
Do they track us? Someone
above reproach on her porch who
chooses to pay her dues. Yet, they
crouch on the topmost point
of the condo box across the way,
"Turkey Buzzards" because it's
Florida, and they like it here.
Hunched over the tip of the roof
like gargoyles at Notre Dame,
but this is not Paris, didn't someone
tell them that? They are here
to scare with their ominous stare
and WHAT are their thoughts,
as black as the ellipses they live
in? Do they mean us ill, we who
are consigned to venues
erroneously called Bahama Point
and Paradise Commons?
Uncommon signatures you'd be
myopic to believe we signed
up for the tropics.
