Octopus Growls

I just learned, todayoctopus
while perched on a stool
waiting
for enough time to pass
for enough fun
before I could soap down, rinse, and dry
a smiling toddler
Today I learned that an octopus growls.
Today the yellow fish is,
definitely,
a green fish.

Today,
she is too small to fly.
Today,
she needs wings,
like a butterfly.

Today,
while I’m impatiently waiting for tub to drain.
