Mountains and Hammocks
Missed Connections in State College

We spent a day on the mountain in a net, hiking and climbing rocks.
You remember it.
If by some chance you are reading this you know who you are.
Do you remember the frogs screaming in our ears?
I miss the careless days spent with you.
I feel crazy writing this.
I’ve not much more to say beyond a simple “I miss you.”

What is it that makes for a”perfect moment”?  Is it defined as something special and memorable while we’re in that rarefied space or only upon reflection (when life is no longer quite so perfect)? Aroid’s image of a girl and a ’78 Civic riding through the forest captures some of that youthful abandon our poet clearly misses. Can enjoying a memory ever be enough when reality paints a different picture?

What the wut? by Kenny Louie

I Was the Ostrich Hanging Out with the Alien…
Missed Connections in State College

I know you saw me. I don’t understand why you dis me like you do. Is is my long neck with the snake head attached???? Do you not date outside your species? What do you have against birds??? Is it the company I keep? I was only with that alien cause I was bored and afraid to ask you to go to the movies with me.

Anyway, I like your style and I want to squish your curls with my hands… I mean my beak. Can you come over, so I can do that, please? If only you dated ostriches, we could both be so happy, eating seeds and watching movies and I’d protect you from aliens. Get it together and give me a call.

Her Two Cents from the Missed Connections Chief Bottle-Finder:

Lovelorn Poets Her Two Cents IconWrapping up the accidental missed connections animal theme we’ve had today (aardvark, turkey, and now, ostrich) I have to say this must have been one interesting party in State College! Finding Kenny Louie’s photo on Flickr Creative Commons really made me laugh – and hey, Darth Vader is kind of alien-like, right? Our poet might want to exercise a little caution in ditching the alien, tho’ as suffering extra-terrestrial wrath would not be fun.
