Poem - Skeletons in the Sky

Pat, a while back my wife and I were driving down I-44 toward Tulsa
and I noticed a couple of abandoned cell phone antenna towers. They
were the "old" style open iron framework. My wife asked who would be
responsible for removing them and I told her that someday the original
owner might, but no guarantee. She said "they look like skeletons in
the sky", so I suggested that she call our daughter (the English
Teacher) who lives in Ohio and give that to her as a title for a poem.
True to form, here it is -- put it in the Digest if you like.

Skeletons in the Sky
Skeletons in the sky,
Bony fingers reaching for
Empty and alone
No longer alive with the
Chatter of stockbrokers
Best friends,
Alone they stand
Whole, but broken
Waiting for the sweet sounds
To bring them back.
Skeletons in the sky,
Bony fingers reaching for
