A Lizard Sonnet
If you travel to escape the small lizard on your back
You will eventually be outside your parentsí house
Only they have long since go
Someone else lives there perhaps a child sleep in your bed
Dreaming your dreams
You walk down a street where you used to play
But no one knows, and the sense of loss overwhelms you
Swallow hard not to cry because your memory is untrue.
You left to get a small-minded town, poverty and screams
†In the night, but it was worth going back to remain you what
An awful place you left.
I have a small lizard in the kitchen have tried
To kill it because it is grey and without redeeming colours that
Could make it into a pet but it is too quick and hide in corners
I can`t reach so it can live for now.
