Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the Canoga Park Art Walk 🙂

The night before the event, a few of us took to the sidewalks and chalked. I drew a rather large octopus queen with a royal crown and third jeweled eye. Last night during the art walk, I had some time to write about her:


Wrangle me, octopus tentacles!
Your oily void bemuses
more than my underwater willies.
I refuse to outlaw that which merely
exists. Just so, I am not governed
by shapes that bear no consequence
in passing.

    1. My sentiments exactly! You are so versatile in your writing, Billimarie – love the bittersweet lightness of this one.
