Chameleon

she thinks

I don’t know her well

if at all

she ever thinks of me

having metamorphized much

thinking to leave everyone behind

forgetting

I knew her long ago

before the accent shift

cut of hair

clothes

style changes

to fit in to where

she lives now

becoming the chameleon

for fear of predators

history that bit

may bite still

that won’t go away

despite new shoes

shift of colours

for display
