By John Patrick Robbins

Dear Stranger, 

We met so many years ago now I see you through such different eye’s.
Aged and broken like most older men.
You poison your life and everyone around you either died or no longer can recall you’re name.

I believe I saw you thrown out of some bar off Bourbon street.
You laughed as you picked yourself off the ground.

You vanished with the night.

I herd you been seen in so many places are you ever in one place anymore?

I guess I’m just hoping to reconnect.

If lost I hope somehow you truly can be found.

Sincerely John.

I dropped the letter into the mail it found its way to my box a few days later.

It appears I found myself today.
