A dichotomy of difference
To horizon and beyond
A view of tragic development
Through ages that have gone
Trees that stand, far older than the buildings
Are held inferior to the tallest chimney stack.
Fenced in by draping cables –
A prison created by power
Punctuated and reinforced by the two
Dark cooling towers.
Behind the glass, stare at it all
One can almost wish to stay separate from
Such madness or else be consumed.
