Octopus - Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

I'm like
A mimic
Octopus

I can change
Into fifteen
Different shapes

Like a
Snake-
A Stingray-

A lionfish-
Or a
Furry turkey-

So just
Try
& Change me-

You'll find me
Floating away
Like the first

Balloon
Your Mother gave
You-

She told you,
'Hold onto it, Sweetie.'
Then you stepped outside

&
You just
Let go- -
