The Best Of All Possible Poems

like a dozing shark
or a very quiet limb
waiting for the lecture
to make it a star the
best of all possible

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
