Octopuses only have 3 years to live

My tentacles are crazing
My arms into submission,
My hearts march to the beat of
My heads’ drums rolling

Making me black as rock
As luminescent as the
Sun caught in a thousand coral

Spools, maybe just 3 years to
Trick minnows into raw death
Before I release each heart and
Head and leg back to the stark beneath
