Jaywalker free magazine of the arts was published monthly in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and is still available online at all times right here! We hope to get some version of it going again. For now, it is an archival site only.


Check out our old publisher's new blog, The Metaphor Observatory, with plenty of examples of contemporary metaphor in the media.

Chameleon  By G.G. Falderal


Chameleon, mocking bird of light,

Becomes stone in the grassland:

Ensuring longevity by being remote


But the light of love plays many tricks of its own,

And a bargain for safety soon becomes sellout


The grass will wither unattended - undesired

Until all that lives is cool stone


And distance becomes the con artist's new medium

The chameleon rubs with gritty surrogate shoulders


Only to realize far too late in the day,

As stone becomes dust

The world is a field of chameleons.
