Message in an Orange Fanta Bottle, Mexico, 1966

Please whoever gets this:

I am eight and in love
With the pretty stewardess
Who was on our flight
From San Diego to Baja.

She doesn’t know I exist,
She spends all her time with the pilots
Crowded around her on the patio
Here at the same hotel as us.

If you get this and see her
Tell her:
I am true and brave.
If she would just turn around

And see me pushing palm fronds
Into the pool with my foot
One after another
When no one’s watching.
