Missed Connections in Bloomington
if you in passing meet me
and desire to speak to me,
why should you not speak to me?
And why should I not speak to you?
Her Two Cents from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle-Finder:
Alyssa Miller has been featured on these pages previously, and when I stumbled upon this photo of hers and read the accompanying description, I knew she was chasing the same concept as our Bloomington poet. “A superimposition of two shots from a short film I made in New York City about two strangers who form a silent friendship… Inspired by the real people we walk past on the streets…without wondering why or how they got there. We’re all innately connected, even if in our intrinsic lonliness. And yet, we forgot that everyone is the protagonist in his/her own story. And everyone has something to offer.”
