It’s almost impossible to believe this Missed Connection was posted on Craigslist. Odder was that I found it re-posted on i09, a sci-fi blog. It is ‘beautifully written’. Something I would love to hear turned into a song…or even better…something I would actually pay to see if it were turned into a movie.
Missed Connection - m4wI saw you on the Manhattan-bound Brooklyn Q train.
I was wearing a blue-striped t-shirt and a pair of maroon pants. You were wearing a vintage red skirt and a smart white blouse. We both wore glasses. I guess we still do.
You got on at DeKalb and sat across from me and we made eye contact, briefly. I fell in love with you a little bit, in that stupid way where you completely make up a fictional version of the person you're looking at and fall in love with that person. But still I think there was something there.
