HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB DYLAN

 

 

DYLAN’S FIRE AND WATER CHANGING EARTH

 

*Scroll down to hear a YouTube video of Hattie Carroll by Bob Dylan*

 

The first time hearing

“The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll”

Scattering his words across my enraged soul

Shoved by the force of the tidal wave

Engulfed in a musical swelling

All went dark

Only Dylan in a spotlight

Dylan, a light diffuser,

As the lyrics gushed

In a pinpointing geyser

Soaking me

Sixteen soon

Guiding me

Down a one-way path

That would last a lifetime

On a search for misplaced justice…
