This poem by John Reinhart is about an unusual character who will stop at nothing to find love. Illustration by Sam Dunn

I tried inverting

tried changing my skin

grew scales

grew limbs

removed the tail

tucked back tentacles

stuck my eyes to my head

opaqued my outer layer

groomed toenails

moved to a marsh nearer to her

even ate her boyfriend

wore his clothes

to no avail
