(005june 2 07) Ode To A Poetry Anthology - Poem by Max Reif

Set me surfing now
over the waves of your pages
skimming the surface,
bump bump bump,
of the deep ocean
of my own experience

till I can plunge
off the board
into the rich, forgotten

depths of shining fish,
the ones with the great teeth,
the mythologized creatures

as real to you or I
but as yet undiscovered —

and below that somewhere,
the treasure,

the pearl
