CITY OF HUGE BUILDINGS - Samuel Taylor Coleridge Poems


Poems » samuel taylor coleridge » city of huge buildings


City of huge buildings into which men have poured their souls,
City of innumerable schools where little children are taught and cared for,
City of the great University, discussing solemn and learned questions,
City of well-dressed, beautiful women, sleek, satisfied, sure of their clothes and of themselves,
And their husbands sleek and satisfied also:
I, a common prostitute, in the wan morning buying cocaine,
Ask you the meaning of it all.
