Mammoth dark brick buildings

architecturally portrayed against a cloudy gray sky,


high they tower

above

anything ever conceived of

by our imagination's

eye,

larger than life, I


walk through the maze

of a dream-induced haze;

metaphysical

images

arise, they

rise and they rise


like smoke from the stack,

tops burnt black

from perpetual

chemically induced

exhalations,


now witness an aberration:


panes are cracked,

frames lack

their maximum capacity

for glass;

empty

sockets without eyes,


skulls

that lie

forgotten

in an

asphalt

graveyard.
