Little Egypt


“While driving home late one night, something, mostly unrelated, reminded me of the Coasters song “Little Egypt.” I hadn’t thought of it in years. What surprised me was that I started singing every word of it. When I got to these lines of lyric, I knew it had to be an art project:
  ‘She had a picture of a cowboy tattooed on her spine,
  saying Phoenix, Arizona, nineteen forty-nine.’

— Michael Goettee
