The Humble Crafter
for Paul Violi


I am thinking of you and the whimsical

grace with which you lived and taught; the humor

you enjoyed, imbued; the daily rumor

of your wit; life’s confusion, its musical

charm—a drunk, Irish priest on a bicycle

delivering the gospel of “do more

god than ham before you sniff the tomb,” or

veer sharply into the metaphysical

fish cart. What more wincing balm than laughter

coaxed from savage jaws of self-importance?

A ransom note haiku, published at birth:

the threat of beauty by a humble crafter,

demanding that we greet our happenstance

by marveling at what one life is worth.
