In her own words...
"To the Rescue"
Think of a lizard as a spot of day-glo green,
insect-sized, though in all ways perfect.
Lost in this kitchen of chrome-souled
recipes for oblivion, he looks hard at me.
His skin, my skin, our heartbeats tight with
trauma, I carry him out where, tack-sharp,
two green push-ups, and a cool survey
of the universe, my endangered species
walks, not runs, away, leaving his savior
staring at two brown leaves pasted by rain.
