    TEAMSTER ELDER


    He
    opened
    and closed doors
    of fancy cars and limousines
    for the best of them,
    and
    sometimes
    for the worst of them as well.
    but
    they were all
    the biggest stars,
    the brightest,
    the greatest and most famous,
    the ones
    time
    never forgets.

    for
    over fifty years
    he drove giants around
    and
    gods and goddesses home,
    and as always,
    drove them all back
    to the studios
    on time

    on call

    all
    hours
    of the day
    and through the night.
    through clear skies
    and stormy heartbreaks,
    he was there
    driving
    for the most famous
    and the most fortunate,
    the world's greatest legends
    just a seat away.

    the
    man could
    rattle off years worth
    of rich and sincere stories,
    sides of Hollywood history
    virtually unknown
    to nearly all
    except a privileged few.
    secret stuff
    unlikely heard of before
    and
    no doubt wanted kept that way
    by close friends
    and the families of whom
    they were about.

    so
    many of them
    have long since died,
    even though on film
    they live on

    but
    only as legends now,
    only as history.
