John Pitman

On hearing the news
of John Pitman’s passing.
I mull over memories,
decayed and neglected.
He’s a brushstroke,
an impression –
when reanimated.
A humorous king
of the witty aside.
A painter in film.
A seeker of truth.
A reveller in nuance,
with a soft drawling voice.
And I know there’s more,
much more, to the man.
But all that I have
are these small
shiny fragments.
These remnants
and remains.
These rich
remember when’s.
