I chose to portray him as the scruffy young poet who wrote:
"In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines Sprung from cages out on highway nine, Chrome wheeled, fuel injected,and steppin' out over the line H-Oh, Baby this town rips the bones from your back It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap We gotta get out while we're young `Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run"
I know they call him "The Boss" but
there's something about a Tramp that makes me swoon!
"Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend I want to guard your dreams and visions Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims And strap your hands 'cross my engines Together we could break this trap We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back H-Oh, Will you walk with me out on the wire `Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider But I gotta know how it feels I want to know if love is wild Babe I want to know if love is real "
Apparently, few people realize that the iconic palm-shaped amulet,
popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa, depicting the right hand with 2 thumbs,
an image recognized and used as a sign
of protection in many societies throughout history,
believed to provide defense against the evil eye. . .
is called a Hamsa.
But that's OK!
I guess it's my own inside joke,
and I'm still giggling!
