eight kisses

When i was 19 i dove with an octopus. It approached us and stuck around for a few minutes, as curious about us as we were about it. After a while, it was in my hands and i was surprised at how pleasant the feel of this animal was, how supple and soft. When it was time for it to leave, it signaled so by suddenly changing color, and it took off. Haven't eaten calamari since.
