Teamster On The Run - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki

Think of a burly guy in leather jacket
baseball cap bill shadowing broken nose
hamhock mitts dangling at his side

Stereotype, you protest! Show me
a mug like this who frequents
the coffee shops in Hyde Park

near the University of Chicago campus
sitting at a table poring over Sartre
or whoever the latest avant garde

may happen to be whom professors favor!
If you do spot such a creature on campus,
he's either unloading a truck out back
or he's visiting his granddaughter!
