A Lizard’s Tongue


Never would have guessed

two lips touched with open
mouths when kissing –
or tongues touched –
protruding like a lizard.

Do tongues turn colors?
Rough – claws – small, but
many –
beneath a lamp post – in
moonlight –
could it be a lizard
long and thin – turns dark –
creeps into night or
was I dreaming?

Was a lizard’s
tongue touching mine?

Saliva slithered on a tongue
with mouths open, lips
touching – moving back
and forth, in and out. ..

Was it simply a dream
of the statue in the center
of the Children’s Room
at our local library?
