The Coast of Chicago, by Stuart Dybek – 1990 [Tunis Ponsen]

the-coast-of-chicago-stuart-dybek-1990-tunis-ponsen-1The infield is for
wisecrackers,
pepper-pots,
gum-poppers;
the outfield is for
loners,
onlookers,
brooders who would rather study clover and swat gnats than holler. 
People could pretty much be divided between infielders and outfielders.
Not that one always has a choice. 
He didn’t necessarily choose right field so much as accept it
