dumb lizard

You asked me why?
I didn’t know
some things we can’t answer even just for show,
I am a dumb
lizard
flicking out my tongue
trying to find… something.
You looked at me,
I couldn’t stand it,
tore out of that apartment like a red-handed bandit,
and no matter what the clocks on the wall
are screaming
I can feel it in my hands,
there’s no time remaining,
I am a dumb
lizard
hiding in the rotting leaves,
hoping you pass me by.
