Poem #19 from: A Lizard Life

Back to A Lizard Life – Introduction


the progress is slow
even for this cautious one

he approaches
stops
bobs his head low

peers forward

wary
looks to each side

behind

weaves forward

opens a wide yawn and

his-s-s-s

fierce and sharp

silence hisses in return

a step forward

nose
to
nose

tongue out

tongue out

a handsome contemplation

move left

move right

admirable stripes

raises his head

raises his head

a sleek tail

slow blink

slow blink

a turn away

the reflection
is gone
merely a tail
merging into distance
