  • Denotes the powerful surging movements of cephalopods.

    Coined for the poem "An amorous squid to his love";

    Come, my love

    past the roughness

    of the clams

    the darkness

    is ours!

    the yellow eye

    that glitters above

    is gone – let me

    lace you

    in my arms,

    let us


    together, deeper

    ever deeper

    past the sleeping whale...

    poem continues, I'm afraid
