Getting High in the Modern World

Having run
out of
ground to
walk on
cities around
the world
have begun
going vertical.


There’s a
building in
Dubai the
Burj Khalifa
that’s over
a half
mile high
& in
Hong Kong
there are
vertical communities
the residents
of which
never get
lower than
five storeys
the ground.


Some see
this as
a tribute
to man’s


Meanwhile the
polar ice
to melt
& the
land crumbles
the sea.
