Haiku

I've been reading about meditation and some of the Tao must have seeped into my blood:

Artificial Mountains

I've seen you before:
you stretch from the basement
to the thirteenth floor

Is your office on the 13th floor? Can we visit your new building when we come, and the Oquirr Mt. temple? We plan to fly, arriving Sep. 26 and stay for one week.

I'm on the 3rd Floor. You can definitely visit. We've still got some names you got ready for us.

I was thinking of this quote:
It occurred to us, gliding by the thirteenth floor and seeing the numeral ’14' painted on it, that our atom-splitting scientists had committed the error of impatience and had run on ahead of the rest of the human race. They had dared to look into the core of the sun, and had fiddled with it; but it might have been a good idea if they had waited to do that until the rest of us could look the number 13 square in the face. –E.B.
