a little poem dedicated to the amphibian community or whatever those alien lizards are.

His feet are small
       scaling high rises
in the midst of summer
       watching rainbows
fall beneath color stars
       in mystic shades
of green, brown, and blue
       turning chameleon
feeling with his tongue
       he moves along
the windows with stealth
       snapping flies
like the night swallows
       a star under a cloud
the walker swishes his tail
       turning his green body
contorting to climb down
       a patio beam, scampers
into a nearby rose bush
       to rest and shed
his lizard skin.
