Hammers. Heights. Metal.
Constant motion. Constant noise.
Howling wind, grimaced skies.
Vertigo. Hard Hats.
Climbing up. And up.
Huge beams swinging. Spinning.
A skeleton.
A huge metal skeleton.
Higher and higher rising.
Motion. Shouting. Orders.
Stabbing into the heart of the sky itself.
Fingers, fangs pointed upward, gathered together and bound.
Tight rectangles.
Sturdy Support.
Motion. Constant.
Sweat. Constant.
Thrill. Fear.
Lunch. Break. Back to work.
Ropes. Tethers. Pay Attention.
“Save your life one day.”
Night.
Please come sooner. An end.
Work done for the day.
Home.
Sleep. Wake up.
Back to work.
