Role model (requiem for dad)

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

that inspired envy more
than disdain,
admiration that trumped
any 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
