FOUND by Michael in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
Dated November 30, 2011, this note was found almost two years later under an overpass. It starts “I don’t know when you will find this …” Did he find it right away, keep it for two years, and then throw it away? Or was it undiscovered for two years, and did he throw it away as soon as he found it? Either way, it wasn’t just tossed in the trash. I picture someone launching it into the breeze from the overpass railing, watching it flutter away.
I like the sudden anatomical earthiness on the third page; always remember, it wasn’t just your dick size I fell for. Good to know.

FOUND by Lauren L. underneath a U-Haul seat
Three years ago, I found two copies of this underneath a U-Haul seat while I was moving out of my freshmen dorms. It came with another sheet of paper with a digital image of a pixelated grim reaper that I can’t seem to find now. The U-Haul got towed that night (unrightfully, but thats another story) and I spent hours trying to find the tow yard on foot. I finally found the yard and was in the depths of despair after paying the City of Chicago a $300 fine when I found this. I just read it over and over and over and it made my night.
FOUND by Justin Tyler in Denver, Colorado
I found this in the back of a journal I was flipping threw in an ARC thrift store just outside of Denver. It blows my mind that this heart-to-heart letter sat unread and untouched for almost 30 years. It might have been a rough draft, but the journal I found it in had no other pages torn out that I could see and nothing else was written in it. Why it never made it to Lisa I guess is up for speculation. Thank you Jon, Now your letter was’ent written in vain.

Whoever created this obviously put a lot of time and emotion into creating just the right expression of love. Yet, there it was, on the street, neglected and forgotten. Love. So deep. So fleeting.
