Today I was in the Arcata Artisans cooperative art gallery, on the plaza, restocking a rubber stamp display case that I have there. In the door came a "fuzzy" (there are lots of them in Arcata, especially around the plaza). This guy asked the cashier about the layaway plan. She asked him what he was interested in, and he said a stamp, then he picked out a small one (Seated Nude). At that point he asked me who I was, and I told him I make the stamps, so then he wanted to know if I'll trade for it. Now usually what the fuzzies have in their pockets is illegal but it turns out he had a whole sheaf of poems, and he gave me this one. I asked him to sign it, and that's when he drew the heart. If you are wondering what fuzzies are, do a google search using keywords: arcata eye fuzzies.
