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.
