Octopus By Christian Ward

Octopus

Always a nonet, not a sonnet. 
Blue blooded. A disco ball to
outshine every cuttlefish, 
outsmart every last crow. 
The sea thumps to its
triple heart beat
while you sip
Mai Tais, 
float.

Christian Ward is a UK based writer who can be currently found in Culture Matters, Impspired, Literary Yard and Poetry and Places.
