I think the pipes are connected to a burning substance

.
And lo! Supreme Plumbling was created, and it was established on Fourth Street, in Saint Louis, Missouri, nigh unto the White Castle, somewhat close to the shadow of the Arch, and all the other plumbers gave way, yielding to its supremacy. The Supreme Plumber, wizened wise man of the faucets and drains, giving and taking away the waters of life, flashed the peace sign and grew his beard yet further unto the sidewalk. He gathered up his pipes and attached them to a single Great Bowl. He filled it with a magical substance that the Powers of Darkness strove to suppress. He put fire to the bowl and drew upon it, blowing its smoke upon his companion in wisdom, Elbow Joint the Owl, who thereupon straightaway entered oblivion.

TOMORROW: What a catch!

My God. I love this building, I love your writing. This is the ultimate photo blog post.

I don't think that owl will be finding the center of a tootsie pop anytime soon. Even the second-floor windows are all helter-skelter. I wouldn't want to be here at night though.
