Dear Dawn,

I hope this finds you well. I’m writing to tell you that I love you. We haven’t met yet but when you told me you loved me, in your personal ad. Where you told anyone who read it that you loved them. I wanted to write you back:

Dear Dawn,

I love you. That’s all.

Love, Loren

What are the stakes of transformation Dawn? How much will you reveal yourself to me, every morning?, since 1960? Its women like you that give me the strength to know that things will work out. You open the door for tic-tac-toe to be do be.

I wish I could hold your hand and we could look up at the sun together, warming our cheeks.

Ever Yours,

Won’t you please write?

Love,

Loren
