Missed Connections

American Girl in Prague

Searching for the blonde girl
lost on Anglitzky
in Prague, unable to locate
her Airbnb rooms
after her little dickhead of a boyfriend
left her stranded
on the streets
at 2 a.m.

I helped her find her way to him
but left with an uneasy feeling
regarding her safety.
If you are her
or if you know her
please let me know
she's home safe.

Riverview Tower, San Antonio

I held the elevator door for you.
Our eyes met. 
You took the stairs.
