Lenny The Lizard & The Mirror & The Positano Sun - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

The mirror

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.
