‘godzilla is on my shoulder’

godzilla is on my shoulder
a mutant of my environment
roaring, roaring
in a vacuum.

godzilla tripped off every early warning alarm
though no one gave it pause—
in its wake lies desolation;
it stomps in isolation.

godzilla is on my shoulder
misunderstood as it may be;
some think the beast has just woken

friends, it has never slept.
