Comments: "Desolation Row"

Mr. Lloyd my Problems-in-American-Democracy theachr in high school and an Ex Marine told our class to watch Bob Dylan on the Lloyd Thaxton Show, the first I'd EVER heard of Dylan. Maybe 65-66 I'm not sure. I've thought Dylan is the greatest poet ever since.

And what is the circus about?

==Cinderella, she seems so easy/"It takes one to know one," she smiles/And puts her hands in her back pockets/Bette Davis style==

Does that supposed to mean something? Sorry, I'm not impressed.

=They sat together in the park/as the evening sky grew dark. She looked at him and he felt a spark/tingle to his bones/'Twas then he felt alone/and wished he that he'd gone straight/And watched out for a simple twist of fate=

Now, I'm impressed.

When Dylan DOESN'T write poetry, but rather writes
lyric, is when he is at his best.
