Some Musings in the Solarium

by Simon Pettet

lizard sits on a rock

lizard sits

sun’s hot

sun refracted to lizard

through the spotlesslyclean highrise

plateglass windows.

lizard is not disturbed by this

not at all

lizard even opens self up wider,

stretch to properly adjust

to the sun’s rays

lizard finds health and warmth in the depth

of winter

and this is not what lizard expects!
