i met a man

10 Feb

i met a man, a very important man

his tentacles reached all over the globe

but he wore a shabby coat

and stunk of cigarettes

i asked with all of the proper deference due

how i might develop some tentacles too

“slap a sucker on a friend, and then another”

“suck in your lover, then run for cover”

“then slap a sucker onto facebook”

“paste your kisser onto instagram”

“won’t be long then.”

“I don’t know” I said

“all this sucking kind of makes me feel sick”

“well then, being an octopus may not be your thing”

and then he reached for another cigarette
