Our yard is a haven for reptiles, methinks–
Lizards–anoles, geckos, and dozens of skinks.
They lie on our wall, the sun on their backs
It’s a reptile condo–they live in the cracks.
I know little about them, but maybe you can say
What’s that white stringy thing he’s holding that way?
I wanted a better picture, but time didn’t allow
He swallowed the thing before I figured how!
