    • Abstract:
      In this article the author recounts her experience of meeting the poet Don Coles and pays tribute to his poetic works. She first met Don in 1986. She describes that Don's competitiveness on the volleyball court dispelled, forever, any images one might have of the poet as sedentary, retiring individual. She had the pleasure of reading one of Don's poems at the final evening literary reception. Don has been a friend and mentor to many. But his lasting gift to future generations of writers will be his uncanny way of writing.
