When Monsters Clash

Godzilla vs Ghidorah

Power and strength
That quivers the ground
As every blow connects
Neither has been challenged
Until today
Blood is not drawn fast
And bones resist
Like no opponent before
The monsters
Are more mortal
When in each other’s presence
No other force
Can do them harm
So they battle
And bleed
Across the landscape
Until
One
Falls

(So, this poem is to promote War of Nytefall: Savagery that should come out next month.  Clyde is due to fight a being that equals him in strength, so it’s a Monster vs Monster fight.  Funny thing is that I totally forgot that ‘Godzilla vs Kong’ is coming out around the same time as I schedule this in February.  I remembered halfway through and couldn’t figure out which I was talking about.  Odd coincidence there.)

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    I immediately thought of Godzilla because I grew up watching kaiju movies and also other monster movies like Frankenstein, various werewolf and vampire movies. I have to say there is something satisfying about watching monsters fighting (like the Jurassic Park/World movies). But you mean the Underworld level of monster where they are humanoid. There is more emotional angst in that type of situation. I don’t have to care who gets defeated in Godzilla versus Kong or Mothra, because each is so “other” I cant relate. I can relate to Clyde because he still has some semblance of humanity.

    • I don’t know. Done right and people will care who wins in a monster vs monster movie. Humanoid monsters can bring on more emotional angst, but I’ve found that isn’t always the case. Once you add sympathy and more sensitive emotions, they kind of lose their monstrous appeal.

  2. That’s funny to a degree. I’ve had so much brain fog lately, I can relate.

  3. I enjoyed the poem. The point about the monsters being more mortal fighting each other is a good one.
