Dylan on Einstein
Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood, with his memories in a trunk,
passed this way an hour ago with his friend, a jealous monk.
Now he looked so immaculately frightful as he bummed a cigarette,
then he went off sniffing dream pipes and reciting the alphabet.
You would not think to look at him, but he was famous, long ago,
for playing the electric violin on Desolation Row.
-- Bob Dylan, Desolation Row
