I was descending the stairs at the Civic Center BART station, when I saw this little gem stuck at the bottom of the stairs, crumpled up against the wall. I passed it, then circled back, waited until no one was around, then GINGERLY picked it up (the Civic Center BART station stairs is no place to let your hygiene guard down!) and stuck it in my bike basket. I read through it and decided to submit. It reads like it was written by a homeless person or shelter dweller to another one, and the reference to bleach suggests some IV drug use as well. I don’t know how they worked it out…I am hoping the writer’s name is “Pinstripes” but I can’t quite make it out…

We were at the Goodwill in Tucson on 4th Ave Downtown and found this inside a book. We were too cheap to actually purchase the book itself so we asked if we could have it along with some other purchases we made that day: a picture sleeve 45 of David Bowie’s “Modern Love” for 45 cents and a bunch of Harry Potter cassette tapes.

This letter was in an old dresser I bought at an estate sale.

Found by Lenie in NYC, NY
A tenant moved out & left their whole life behind, from baby books to artworks, love letters to random musings. Drawers had old lottery tickets & clippings of hair, film reels & broken earrings-the detritus of a life. So, as Rod Serling would have said, “Submitted for your approval, one envelope with handwriting…random lovelorn musings or something else entirely.”
