A winter's day
In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow
I am a pole
On Staten island

Send the bills to the North Pole where they belong.

No normal person sends bills to a wooden telephone pole.

Lovin' the S&G earwig!

Come on, Pole-ish jokes aren't nice.

She sounds Italian to me.


Before he retired from a tobacco company and hired on to the telephone company wasn't Elijah a Native American Indian instead of Polish?

Did that guy say it's standard procedure to send the bill to the pole? I guess normal people don't work at Con Edison.
