Skyscrapers Stand Proud

The Skyscrapers stand proud.

     They seem to say they have
     sought the absolute
     and made it their own.

Yet they are blameless,
     innocent as dumb steel and the dumber
     concrete of their bastions.

“Man made us,” they murmur. “We are
     proud only as a man is proud and we
     have no more found the absolute
     than has man.”
