Role model (requiem for dad)

He lived his life with
sly, infectious,
mock hubris
an egoless spiritual
panache

that inspired envy more
than disdain,
admiration that trumped
ridicule.

Women and men equally
found him engaging; he
counted many much older,
numerous considerably
younger than he
as close friends

Most admirably,

knowing himself
quite uniquely flawed
he never aspired to anything
other than accomplished
imperfection.
