that was made for it;
it runs away as soon
as one says its name;
it loves to be incognito.
Its best moments
are when it forgets
what it is called.

And while you’re teaching…you could help me write a tribute like that too….just lovely. “laughter is his religion”, “he has a way of seeing…” I want to know him.
…and here I was thinking I was the fortunate one.
Thanks, Mom. Love you, too.
