In your old shoes you look just like
who's been gone for a long time
but who comes back
to find his parents replaced
by a pair of large lizards - iguanas.
They are sloping toward the door right
to greet you.
Look. You smile at their smooth brown
You laugh when they flick their tongues.
O mother, your eyes are sweet steel.
O father, give me four
quick feet like yours.
