A chameleon can
whisper in any language.
It can tongue
the chocolate bannister of lust
and not get stuck.
If the bannister melts,
the chameleon will drink it—
it does not need a handrail,
it does not need stairs.
It scales the several stories
of a cocoa affair
with its eyes rolling,
with its coiled tail erect.
