lizard is king

this is
the part where
the future sits by a poolside
competent or not,
looks up to constellations

the part where
the childhood comfort
remains needed,
the heavily weighted object
sits in the chest

the part where
someone diagnoses
the witching hour
and someone else
praises purity
and your face is
a moving facet
telling me it loves me
(and i love it too,
i love it so much)

the part where
the lizard plays god,
casts gazes downward,
conquers all the jungle bugs
that would
feast on my blood
while i slept
