Clever Animals

we beautiful chameleons
look you in the eye
while we change our shape
i could never respect
your consonance:
my jaw’s too wide
to want one thing

we beautiful chameleons
laughing in the dark
while we stalk our prey
i’ll admit sometimes
i'm hideous:
that's just the price
of being brave

not to walk on water
but to dance on air

we beautiful chameleons
swimming through the dust
that the breathing shed
why be safe
when we could
be colorful:
let virtue take
her sacred nap

we beautiful chameleons
singing into wounds
that are freshly traced
it pays to be a
clever animal,
but thinking's
just forgetting
