The Forbidden Dream

She’s an eight year old
Japanese girl

and she dreams
of Godzilla

she lost her parents
her house

her dolls
elders tell her

she must not
dream of Godzilla

they tell her
those dreams

are for little boys only
the vapors are rising

the vapors
are spreading

and she dreams of Godzilla
battling steam
