An ode to an octopus

Mimicry delight Turning in fright A splash of ink Makes you think Why can’t I obscure And slink into nooks Hidden and demure And outwait the danger Without looking stranger Than the ocean floor Just another background, nothing more The whole thing is worth watching, but after minute 4:15 is absolutely stunning.
