Curiouser and curiouser, as Alice once said. I found a poem titled Octopus Confessional! Written by Stephen R. Roberts; it appears in the Tipton Poetry Journal. I don't know when the poem was written, but it appears in the journal, which has a copyright of 2007.
The journal no longer publishes, but they put out about a dozen issues. A gathering of open mic poets from Indiana was the inspiration for the journal. You can read the poem here.
