The Lizardís Eye


My eye, the cameraís eye, the lizardís eye
     Met as I bent to seize my subject.


Seize it I did, catching the great creatureís form, and

With a click committed it to the memory card.


     The lizardís eye, piercingly bright

     Met mine, seizing me, making me the subject,
     Drawing me deeply into its indifferent world.
