lizards don't understand - 4-22-99, 8:14 pm

a lizard goes walking on the ground.
his scales on the black falt make a sizzling sound.
as he comes upon a lake, i say,
"the wind moves very slow today."
he shakes his head, for he can't speak..
as he submerses, in the water flows a rippled streak.

in the lake, a lizard walks the floor.
his eyes are searching for something more.
as he crawls upon a rock, i mumble,
"if in that direction you go, you'll tumble."
he nods his head, yet cannot think.
as into the pit he begins to sink.
