Or to be a cephalopod

and go with unduluous

connection instead of

swinging levers to step

in tick-tock, bipedal, motion.

The notion flashes

over my consciousness

like chromatic waves across

a cuttlefish. Integumentary

invention exceeds my grasp,

alas, feet opposite head,

limbs, distal, canted, shuffling

forward.
