Skyscraper – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)


skyscraper dreams
the power of these things
cityscape, it is true
imposing land markers
touch a sky of blue
skyscape escapism
containing everything
that money can buy
looking at the world
man made dinosaurs
in a neo technical world
that slowly eats all that is old
skyscraper dreams
into a land that folds
inner city decay
financial sector living
living things,
skyscraper dreams

James Garratt – 1994
