    Coast Pssts: Poetry

    I am not sure how I missed this Coast Psst from October 15th:

    To Coated Cutie
    That bus ride with you today was a trip.
    Hope you remember me, on the 1? We both got off at the Oxford.
    You gave me a look that said “Maaan, hold my books”
    and I gave you one back that said “Nice tits”
    I know you felt the connection.
    So maybe you’d like to connect in the bedroom sometime?

    From Mohawked Whore

    I hope there’s a follow-up.
