I saw some playing cards lying in the snow. What did they represent?
* a viral marketing campaign for a Springsteen concert in his Magic
* Heath Ledger, shining down on us, in his latest (last?) role as The Joker
- plugging the 2008 summer release The Dark Knight
* just some kid that lost his cards?
Whatever is the case - and I do agree that most evidence leads to the last option - it's symbolic.
At least 5 playing cards in the snow. And unless someone comes to claim 'em, a deck will be incomplete. Permanently.
It's almost a metaphor of life itself : Life's a game
. Better play along.
