Out in the mid-day

                Along this wall
                Stones sun stoked
                To frying point
                The lizard
                Green as a leaf bud
                Newly opening
                Insinuates himself
                Three steps forward
                One step slowly back               

                Three steps forward

                And then again
                Three more

                Pausing at my shadow’s hem

                Scurries under

                Looks up at me
                With a sidelong glance
                As if to say:
                “Fucking hell, it’s hot to-day!”
