Eight floors up

Orlando is not Cambridge.  Eight floors up here with a view of another hotel is not like thirteen flights with an immediate elevator and a view of the Charles mid-morning.  Still... some say exercise can be a good thing. Some say.

Eight floors up
We thought to get a view
Not like Cambridge at all
No Charles River with rowers
The sun already half-skied
Eight floors up
We thought:
A view
We are directly across from a hotel
Just like ours
Eight floors up.
I met the cement stairwell
Last night
Eight flights of it
The lines to the elevator
So long
I climbed instead
Exercise is sometimes good.
Eight flights up.
