If this octopus escapes an open tank,
look carefully around, then worry.
It can scuttle over land.
Longer than a car,
it squeezes through an orange-size
hole. The beak? In its crotch or armpit,
take your pick. Ignore the venom
that dissolves flesh. Stronger than
a body-builder. Truly its suckers, shape,
ink, brain: Unique. Not a vertebrate.
If you see it,
vibrate in your boots,
