The Giant Octopus

If you couldn’t see something,
You wouldn’t insist it was
Impossible to witness,

But still you will attribute
Your frustration to a trait
Of whatever frustrates you.

The aquarium’s giant
Octopus has evaded
Your recognition of it

On a number of visits
Spaced over several years.
It must be the octopus,

The tricky, intelligent
Octopus—that octopus,
You say, is invisible.
