An elegant, portentous blimp
Rumbles into the first stanza,
Lightning streaking the sky either side
Like air quotes.
Under the gondola, a ski-masked champion
rappels down a black line
onto a skyscraper giddy with swivelling turrets.
He is killed instantly.
The disappointment of the watching crowd below
is probably a metaphor
for the end of childhood
or maybe marriage,
Godzilla trudging glumly through downtown
like a bag lady.
