FOUND by Samantha Fugett
I found this letter in the parking lot of the Lloyd Center Mall in Portland, OR. The crossing out of the correct spelling of “basis” to write “baces” makes this heartfelt letter that much more sad.

This sad letter was in a used car that I bought. In the car was also a tin can of pineapple chunks, a flash drive not containing any files, and a butter knife.

This is a fairly sad love note of unrequited love.

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.
