LENNY THE LIZARD & THE MIRROR & THE POSITANO SUN


The mirror
admires

your nakedness

(smiling in passing)

Lenny the lizard
clinging to the wall

with all the gall
of a peeping Tom

admires it too.

Sweat stings
my eyes.

The morning Positano sun
gazes firecely

at your beauty

making you perspire
as it admires

the view

I too
admire you

& then

I do more
(than admire)

our bodies
writhing in the mirror

Lenny the lizard

darting away
with your delighted laughter.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
