             to redefine world

             we need the solidity

             of a place on which to stand
             where world is visible

             and possibility exists as well



             we need

             a past that can be used

             the violence of tears
             the pleasure of laughter




             who but a father can teach us

             a father who knew words
             and knew the passionate

             ineluctability of vision




             gone now, but in the mind
             forever



                                                                           Jack Foley is a widely-published
             the sound of a voice                                         poet, critic, performer, and radio
             that will never be heard again                                host on Berkeley station KPFA.

             beside you

             just before sleep:



             the presence

             of love
