SHE TOUCHED THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT

She touched the hem of his garment, hoping she would be made whole. Even better, she became a real hep old lady, she suddenly had a zoot suit wrapped around her body, a wide brimmed hat and a watch chain , and boooooy, she was struttin' on down the streets of Jerusalem. This real hep combo was wheeling along beside her on a cart, double bass, bootin' sax, the whole thing. She found herself saying things like "daddy-o" and "squares beware" and didn't know what to make of it. These developments were exciting but extremely frightening too. Such a rapid personality shift threatened to send her into some kind of coma or permanent psychosis.
