Poem: Dr. Beny J. Primm Filled a Father’s Place

For many

Beny J. Primm

was a father and earthly parent.

He was simply a big(g) Dude and big(g) idea of a friend and man

present like

a West Virginian mountain positioned in our lives.

He was a bright sunset, a magnificent lion and a jazzy symphony.

He was always poised, fierce and always brilliantly polished with stride

from Dewitt Clinton, Pearl Harbor,Heidelberg, Geneva, Harlem, Westchester, Brooklyn,

and the White House  — he was a real work of art.

And so we may never place his

gifting or his countenance

aptly into words.

He was family,

art and science

with endless commitment,

music, decisiveness, had respect for language arts,

great management, enormous love of sports, and versed in

people where he read between the lines.

We may never place his

gifting or his countenance aptly into words

but we can say, however

that we once

saw directly into a Lion King’s eyes.

We witnessed

the beauty

and

freedom of His instincts

the magnificence

in the workings

of His

his heart.

We felt his capacity

to live and to love.

He was a source, taught many to spell haberdashery, upholder, and protector.

He was fierce, ferocious, distinguished and kind.

In his careers

he was the maverick and

made the hard choices: It was his song to simply say

“I did it my…!”

Hard and loving…

a healing doctor in an endlessly controversial world that makes few decisions

and creates even less solutions.

Beny J. Primm was voice, a humanities’ poet in science,

a gentle medicine-man navigating open emotional lacerations for families and patients.

He was a healthcare advocate attending the wounds of our people’s darkest clinical past.

Beny J. Primm was so many things

Mr. Mom, Alpha gentry, a sportsman and founding Fella,

He consummately

reminds us

of what evolves from de Anima

and

what to expect of familia

what “raison d’ etre”

is evoked from loving

and certainly of

what becomes of us having known a true love.

For many

Beny J. Primm

was a father and earthly parent.

He was simply a big(g) Dude and big(g) idea of a friend and man

present like

a West Virginian mountain positioned in our lives.

He was a bright sunset, a magnificent lion and a jazzy symphony.

He was always poised, fierce and always brilliantly polished with stride

from Dewitt Clinton, Pearl Harbor, Heidelberg, Geneva, Harlem, Westchester, Brooklyn,

and the White House — he was a real work of art.

We may never place his

gifting or his countenance aptly into words

but we can say, however

that we once

saw directly into a Lion King’s eyes.

We witnessed

the beauty

and

freedom of His instincts

the magnificence

in the workings

of His

his heart.
