Gotta Look Forward, Not Back

FOUND by Jerry Mac and Billy B. in Seattle, Washington

On way back to the hotel following a Furthur concert at WAMU, we had just left the light rail station at SEATAC Airport. As we crossed the intersection near 13 Coins Restaurant/Bar, we saw this yellow, folded-up letter in the middle of the street. It was obvious that it hadn’t been there long (no tire tracks), so we grabbed it and took it back to the hotel for “furthur” analysis. All we can gather is that someone had a not-so-good run-in with the police and that a screwdriver was involved at some point. Also apparently you are not allowed to spell out “BITCH” in letters to people in “centers.”

But I Am Leaving Soon

I was on my way to work when this torn piece of paper caught my eye. The garbage collectors had already came by, but this seemed to have gotten away. It was written on card stock, and I think it was the inside front cover of a book or something. I’m not sure what kind of letter it is, if Hyunju is a guy or a girl’s name, or if that person even lives in my neighborhood. The letter starts well enough, then goes awry. “I’m so glad you are the one…” then “something about you…” and finally “about the shit you…” Aren’t those the words to Alanis’ “You Outta Know”?

I’d really like to find out the rest of this letter. It’s a quarter of something emotionally stirring, because it wouldn’t have been ripped liked this otherwise.
