Daredevils

a friend to lizards

writing in airplanes

Behind my house
in the winter lettuce
lizards sunbathe until
clonk clonk clonk –
Here comes the devil
sending them racing
toward leaf cover
cursing man and cold
asking their reptile god
to rain grasshoppers –
A miracle to restore them
to their faith in the sun
