The World Is Ending, Again

Godzilla and Mechagodzilla
play hopscotch
on the street.
Lava spews 
from cracks
in the sidewalk.
I can’t run.

Hurricane Diane 
tears a hole in the roof,
floods the den.
Sharknados rain down,
they play pat-a-cake
with Jaws.
I can’t swim.

The house,
reduced to rubble.
My nerves,
reduced to static.
My bones,
reduced to dust.

No dear,
your mother
can’t come
here tonight.
I’ve had enough 
disasters for the day.
