Octopuses are no more a metaphor

For half a second I had 8 arms for
half a second I was moving
all the plates on the table, setting
forks, arranging
salad spoons glasses all at once

In Greece the octopuses hang
on fences to dry   already
not too much
not too little
but a Goldilocks amount
of beaten so they
are not too tough
not too tender
but just the right amount
of beaten
and they are no more
a metaphor than anything else
I have seen today
