An Octopus in a Rip Current
"An Octopus in a Rip Current" is the first poem I ever published. It is a prose poem, and it took me quite a while to write and edit. I am by no means a poet, but I felt very excited and humbled when this poem was chosen to be published. I don't plan to write much more poetry in the future, but this poem was challenging (in a good way) to write, and taught me a lot about imagery, sybolism, and meaning.
