coincidences pile upon
 1
our lives for instance
 2
yesterday
 3
i talked about you
 4
for the first time in
 5
some time
 6
your length and
 7
lack of atrophy
 8
your contracting pupils
 9
and the way you killed
 10
to find you today
 11
in reptilian heaven
 12
could be no coincidence at all

I can't even pretend to know what you were thinking.  Can you explain this, Poet?

lizzy the lizard.
what were you doing in reptilian heaven? i imagine reptilian heaven is a zoo? because that wouldn't be a coincidence at all because all zoo's (or most) have reptilian houses.
but to have talked about lizards the day before you knew were going to a zoo would be coincidence.

that's how i see it. i like chameleons best.
