End of week 2...

The best of all possible poems

Like a dreaming shark
or a very quiet limb
waiting for the lecture
to make it a star the
best of all possible
poems relaxes asleep
in the tropical surf
beginning near the
right hand corner of
the room. meanwhile
just outside my window
inter-island trade
begins. their supply
of coconuts is endless

I am enjoying looking though the poetry magazines, compiling contributors lists, looking at the cross-advertising that was occurring for other poetry magazines, the bookstores listed that stocked the magazines, recommended books, up coming protests/ poetry readings/ workshops etc. and reading lots of great poems - like the one above.
