I often sit with my door open
To allow a cool breeze through.
One day a small lizard entered my house
And looked around my living room.

It gradually made its’ way
Across to my bare foot
And sat atop it.
Still looking around.

I gently picked it up.
It continued to look around
Before turning around to face me.
I swear it was looking at me. Unfazed.

It came time to close my door
So I placed the lizard outside.
It sat on my veranda
Before scurrying off.

The next day I was sitting on my veranda
Having a cigarette.
A small lizard made its’ way towards me.
It settled itself on my bare foot again.

I swear it is the same lizard.
I have made a new friend.
