Saint Lizard

People are trying to kill me

Good thing I have a reptile brain

Good thing I hatched from an egg

Good thing my tail grows back

Good thing my state appointed

Case worker is back in my life

Walk by me and see how cold I am

Don’t ever test how much I don’t

Care

I’ll never need

Anything

I sit alone in my car on lunch

And

Eat the same leftovers

Everyday

People are trying to kill me

They’ll pull up, in a shitty sliding-door

Minivan without a license plate

Full of guns

I’ll be on the corner

Waiting

And

I’ll beat all the charges

People are trying to kill me

Even if they don’t realize it

I’m from under a heat lamp

But not anymore

You can’t understand

How nothing in this place

Bothers me

a trained professional at hiding

I maybe talk to one other person a day

And

Sometimes I can’t

back to top
