Lessons from the 51st floor

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A year and a half

17 months

to be exact

we moved

here

in this tower

where we sleep

in the clouds

on the

51st floor.

No need to worry

of mosquitoes buzzing

or cockroaches crawling

they are out of breath

on the balcony of the

21st floor.

Up here

in the clouds

with the sun shining

bright

on the

51st floor

we are alone

just Jeezy and me.

But as the sun

disappears

behind

the towers

the brightness

turns to night

on the 51st floor.

A twinkle

catches us by surprise

lights all around

10 million flickers

so close

and

so far

we realize

that we are not so alone

on the

51st floor.

Infinite windows

open

our eyes

to the glimpses

into

the windows

of the lives

of many.

The moments

we catch

from the window

on the 51st floor

have taught us

many lessons.

Most importantly

that

in the darkness

of night

we should always

remember that there

are others

taking a glimpse

into our life

through the window

on the

51st floor

so

when the sun is hiding

clothes

should be worn

always!
