This they do, graciously, and every couple of minutes a citizen snaps a selfie, or gets a portrait made with royalty. Folks come and go, but one man hovers a few feet away for a while and watches it all with interest. He looks a little like Tuck, especially around the eyes, about the same age, but rounder, without the hollows in his cheeks.
Cautiously, he steps forward.

Tuck stands and says nothing and takes the man in his arms and everyone around the bench dissolves into tears. They hold each other a long time. The lights on the rides are coming on, and the last thing I see on the midway is a happy kid, maybe 9 years old, running past us with a souvenir dreamcatcher as big as a manhole cover. He is lean and windburned, red-cheeked and gray-bearded.
His father chased him out of the house. He was always in dutch back then, and the name stuck. Or riding the porch of a grainer anywhere in between.

Everything he owns fits in a knapsack. Heaviest thing he carries are his memories. Folks come and go, talking. The Dutchman is a focused listener. Intense, even at rest. For insight into this next generation of gutter punks and crusties and dirty kids, the postmodern hobos, search out the stunning photography of Mike Brodie. Dutch is one of the motive forces of the Bo-lympics, an proof skills and athletic competition among newly minted hobos.
He even did a TV interview up in the boxcar this year.
Every culture has its seekers and its pilgrims, its mystic beggars and holy wanderers, its ascetic prophets and barefoot madmen, its itinerant poets and singers. And some of this metaphysical shine rubs off on the hobo, who may or may not be looking for enlightenment. Those holy men want you to get rid of things to free yourself from wanting. To give away everything is to pass out of this world, or into heaven, untroubled. A point made one way or another at hobo church on Sunday morning by the fire. But then why is every hobo song so sad? Tuck and his brother are huddled up on a couple of patio chairs near the pavilion.
Five thousand years of wandering and it turns out the real wilderness is inside us. Empty your pockets. Empty your heart. Because here we are.
