Twins - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Early morn break, they stand above fog, they reflect light upon other small structures, enormously tall; them under firmament line: side by side.
They soar, majestic in their appearance, giants seen in far distance, placed nearby water; trade ports by harbor: they near them to provide.

These twins were to protect nation interests, up against economic turmoil; provide growth accomplishments:
all seeing them were proud.
Watchers, super realities above others, temples of retail, Behemoths of steel; rivets joined them 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; pained lives: them given to man's lust delights.

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

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