             for Duane Locke**
        on turning 97

  R. I. P.  Dec. 29, 1921 – Feb. 17, 2019

When first you approach your birthday,
you write of Lind Call,

  a memory vivid,
the recall clear,

filled with references
                                    to artists, real and other,
                                    rolling through experiences,
                                    actual and fantasy
but fantastic all. 

It seems that you have this continuing knack,
this unlimited ability to—

      having established
      one’s self as

a valid, knowledgeable,
                        insightful seer
                        of the varied
                        spatial and color arrays,
                        those spreading such
                        on canvas with

 a certain aplomb
                           over ages—
          with the suriety of seagulls skimming

   over winter turned whitecaps
   yet somehow
   in near rhythm

                        with nature’s edges. 


** former Poet in Residence, Professor Emeritus, U T;
