I just read in PW about a new comic book based on the “missed connections” ads you see on Craigslist and in the newspapers. Curious, I just looked at some of those ads on Craigslist. Some are hilarious, some are poignant, some are like poetry. Like this one here. Line breaks are mine the words are totally his(?).

You know what everyone else sees,
and if you don’t,
I totally
overestimated you.

You know what chance you have…
now.
I don’t mind staying
‘Good Friends’
if that’s what you want.
The thing is,
you tolerate me too
and I’d say
that’s
a great place to start.
