Right Now, I Can't Read Too Good

Don't Send Me No More Letters, No.

I know I'm not the only one who has to stop what they're doing every time Dylan's "Desolation Row" is played. That song is jam-packed with dramatic imagery. Heart attack machines, Ezra Pound and TS Eliot fighting in the captain's tower, Einstein disguised as Robin Hood. Jesus, Dylan's talent makes me sick sometimes! But the lyrics below, I feel, are some of the most devastating the man ever penned.

Yes, I received your letter yesterday
(About the time the door knob broke)
When you asked how I was doing
Was that some kind of joke?
All these people that you mention
Yes, I know them, they're quite lame
I had to rearrange their faces
And give them all another name
Right now I can't read too good
Don't send me no more letters no
Not unless you mail them
From Desolation Row
