Dreaming octopussies

Irving Penn- -Summer Sleep-- New York- 1949.jpeg

Back in the very early days, when we had just met,
You asked to see something spectacular and safe.
So I sent you the movie of an octopus changing colors
While dreaming. And you watched it with a smile,
As I had watched it on the other side of the world.

Somewhere in a lab, an octopus was fighting,
Or fleeing, in its dream as if burning in its dream ;

It is now years after the last message checked sent,
Checked received, checked read ;
We both went to bed tonight dreaming of something else,
And since I haven’t seen you in a while, I asked myself
How deep you’d be camouflaged in the dream.
