'The Super-man' by Jonathan O'Brien

Glass and steel rise before me. A monolith in the modern style. I must climb each of its Art Deco steps. 
One by one. Step by step.

My heart is pounding. I might have an attack before the end. But I keep going. Mustn't stop till I make it to the top. Step by step.

The roof is quiet. The city is sleeping. The neon lights fade as the sun rises over the steel horizon. 
Step by step.

Then I fly.
