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.

In the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago there is a creepy used hotel furniture store, like Motel 6 stuff. I went there with some friends to explore and came across this note sitting in an open nightstand drawer. I’ve carried it with me for years since then, for luck I suppose.

I was taking a break from my run this morning at a shady picnic table in the park. As I leaned over to catch my breathe, I noticed a torn photograph scattered in the grass. I put the pieces together and discovered that someone probably had their heart broken recently.

I found this pink piece of paper on my block. There’s a certain poignancy to what it says, don’t you think? And the absence of any punctuation is curious (was it going to be a poem? Or a song?) There’s also a curious leap in logic, it seems, or else a misunderstanding of the services of a palm reader, as I’ve never known them to be in the business of granting wishes.
