Octopus Vulgaris

I am beautiful.
I have three hearts and no backbone, I am smart, I am solitary.
My silence is powerful.
A sense of authority follows me, I'm not like you but I have your respect.
You eye me with caution.
I can see you sharp and clear, almost right through you.
I can lurk in the shadows and you will never see.
I have no home, I drift across the ocean floor
I've got intelligence, ugliness, strength, beauty.
I will know you.
