Citizen complaint of the day: The highlight of Warren Avenue

An annoyed citizen complains about one of the streetlights along Warren Avenue between Clarendon and Dartmouth in the South End:

Third light pole from the right was replaced with a pole that is 1-2 ft taller than the others. It looks ridiculous. Please replace it with the correct size. I know it sounds petty, but this shouldn't have happened. Whoever installed it clearly wasn't paying attention.
