Twins - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Early morn they stand above fog, enormously tall under firmament line, they reflect light on smaller structures: them seen afar side by side.
Large majestic giants in their appearance they soar, tops seen in far distance placed nearby water; near harbor port which provide.

Twins were to protect nation interests, resolution against economic turmoil; provide growth accomplishments:
all seeing them were proud.
Watchers inside were living realities, temples of retail held many, Behemoths of steel rivets joined locking metal: them high in the sky.

Buyers came to them, they brought from stores items, tradesmen rented sold there; pastured guest conducts in:
lights out before midnight.
Monsters hollow forms iron skeleton frame hold lives on floors, crack dream captured desires; its pained lives: flies given to man's lust delights.

You can hear people inside them, commerce swaps of transactions paid; sound of chang of registers: people in exchange of green.
Herd hooves pace security, footsteps upon pavements in masses, them in rushes to come; them be quick to go: steps to have their needs.

Sunrise blurred vision seen not singular, mistaken to be reflection them mountains at dawn light; towers them to stand over us to be seen.
Two slices they be of a pie in man's heaven, economic scheme of their ambition; titans reach cloud: cages of greed in the jungle of man.
