Mountains and Skyscrapers

A film over your eyes

with glazed images of

mountains, forests, and skyscrapers.

Take two seconds to breathe life in,

and then twenty minutes have gone away.

But you want those two seconds to feel like twenty minutes,

and you want the twenty minutes back.

You are a jilted customer,

but you cannot buy more time.

Pen in hand,

with a spreadsheet displayed prominently before you.

These are your mountains and your forests.

These are the skyscrapers that you build.
