You have to sit still to see a lizard. Really see one, that is. A lizard racing away doesn't reveal much. Sit long enough for your body heat to blend with the space around you, sit still enough so rock or tree or human, it's all the same now, and a lizard will show itself. This one does push-ups. Tiny push-ups. Precise. Up. Pause. Down. Pause. Up. A slow scan of the head. The rough petit point of its skin, brown and gold and ash, softens at its belly, bluish now, and smooth. Move slowly enough, get closer and see what it sees - another lizard in the garden. Waiting.
