the vultures 
are kept up
all night 
by the howl 
of the wind 
by the creak 
& the groan 
of the tower 
as it sways
with the weight 
of their exploits
garbage drops
a thousand feet
in a glass elevator
a maid mops up
a weird flood
trapped in a cloud
with a view
so very far 
above the park
she cannot see it
