Jackson Mac Low

Friends’ Contributions in Memoriam:

Andrew Levy

December 12, 2004—in memory of Jackson Mac Low

Remorse of being, of not being there

I light the Hanukkah candles—

He brought visible order to chance

He let poetry happen

He ushers us to the present

December eighth, two-thousand and four

We love the whole world for its very uselessness

The poem has fallen asleep, Jackson

Wake it up!
